It's a co-thread with the Printer sharer thread, Milo. I can 'see' the desktop from the laptop and v-v, but still do not have 'permissions' to access from the Laptop. It really should not be this difficult!
This is quite amazing! I decided to completely remove both PCs from the network, followed every 'tip' on Google and cannot. Deleting the Network name in 'Computer Name' greys the 'OK' option. The network does not show on the Network Connections page either.
Boogle - yes, I understood that too. That does not happen.
My main pc is now 7 so my memory of XP is dim, and limited to a spare pc in another room. Isn't there something about having to decide in both the XP pcs what is shared, so that the stuff you want to share is put in the "Shared" file?
Just a thought. On your desktop - Start > My Computer. Both 'Local Disc (C)' and the files in 'Files stored on this Computer' all have little hands under the icons to signify they are to be shared? These are the notes I made to network my computers by cable: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/84055647/XP...rk%20Setup.rtf Hope it helps!
