    I use my laptop at the office on a domain and want to use file sharing at home with another vista machine. can I connect to a domain and workgroup at the same time? or is there another solution?

    I know it was possible in XP, but not sure about vista.

    I was able to get connected to both the Domain and Workgroup at the same time.

    With 2 networkcardsin one PC, you use a static address on the Peer-to-Peer network. And for the other NICuse the DHCP server forthe domain. You may have to use a PCMIA network card as the second NIC in a laptop.

    name the workgroup the same as the domain name.

    Been a while since I did any of this, but let me know how you get on.
