i'm setting up a windows server 2012 as file server and print share server. This is a small network (6 PC) so there's no domain.
The server name is "Omega" and ip is: "192.168.1.123"
I can ping the server, connect to it via RDP and see share just typing "\192.168.1.123" or "\Omega" however if i browse the network from Windows 8/7 or linux client i can't see the server (but i can see all other windows machines)
All computer are in the same Workgroup (the classic "WORKGROUP")
The problem seems similar to this one: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/winserver8gen/thread/aa387c3f-ad0c-429c-98c7-e66230592a15/
All required services to show on network are started, Network discovery in Network sharing center is "ON". I got the same issue with windows firewall on and off.
I need the server to be shown in the network because we got 2 "media center" that can reproduce media from network share but they cannot see the server.
Thank you in advance all help will be appreciated
