The problem is that the two machines can't see each other over the network and thus one machine doesn't recognize that an attempt to establish a homegroup has been made by the other machine.  Again, both machines can access the internet.

In a Homegroup there is a common password that needs to be shared between all the Windows 7 or 8 computers. It is usually made up by one, then other machines join the group by entering the same one.

Info on Heartbleed and how to fix ithttp://heartbleed.com/

From openSSL.com:  "OpenSSL Security Advisory [07 Apr 2014]
========================================

TLS heartbeat read overrun (CVE-2014-0160)
==========================================

A missing bounds check in the handling of the TLS heartbeat extension can be
used to reveal up to 64k of memory to a connected client or server.

Only 1.0.1 and 1.0.2-beta releases of OpenSSL are affected including
1.0.1f and 1.0.2-beta1.

Thanks for Neel Mehta of Google Security for discovering this bug and to
Adam Langley <agl@chromium.org> and Bodo Moeller <bmoeller@acm.org> for
preparing the fix.

Affected users should upgrade to OpenSSL 1.0.1g. Users unable to immediately
upgrade can alternatively recompile OpenSSL with -DOPENSSL_NO_HEARTBEATS.

1.0.2 will be fixed in 1.0.2-beta2."

General Discussion / Windows 8.1 Networking Problem
« Last post by Larry on April 10, 2014, 01:54:20 PM »
I am having a problem networking my desktop and laptop computers.  Both are 64-bit Windows 8.1 machines.  Normally my laptop is connected to the network by Wi-Fi and the desktop by Ethernet.  Until I had to refresh my desktop computer due to a virus, everything worked.  After the refresh the two machines can't connect over the network even though both can communicate with the internet.  I found that if I connect the laptop by Ethernet everything works.  In the Network and Sharing Center on both machines, Network Discovery is on, File and Printer sharing is on and Allow Windows to manage homegroup connections is on.  I am baffled.  Does anybody have any suggestions?
