can't see filemaker host on win xp from windows 7

Post

I have a peculiar problem. I have filemaker server 5.5 running  on a win xp sp3 pc. All the computers on the network are also win xp machines and there have been no issues with the server .

 

One pc recently was replaced with a new pc using windows 7 (not the server machine) Filemaker 6 was installed (same as other pcs) on the new machine with no problem. The problem is when I open hosts it's not seeing the server (the xp machines are all fine) I know the lan ip of the host and input that but nothing happens. If I open a file directly frrom the hosted directory from the new pc it tells me it's either a single user file or not available for use. I don't know what the problem is.

 

Help!

Thanks
