    Which network protocols are required to set up a workgroup

    I've been searching the web looking for any resources that can tell me what protocols are required to set up a Windows workgroup between two Windows 8 machines. Is there any difference for two Windows 7 machines? It seems like TCP/IP is a good place to start but which supporting protocols are required if any?

    Thank you

    If you have not made changes to Services.msc, the computer will connect to a Network and SMB will allow you to connect to shares. For what services do what. See » Service Configurations
