Firewire connection works one way ...

... but not the other way. My DELL desktop sees my COMPAQ laptop; I can ping to the COMPAQ from the DELL, and ping the DELL from the COMPAQ (firewall OFF). Both the DELL and the COMPAQ are running administrator accounts. The COMPAQ can see, and use, all the shared material on the DELL. However, the DELL says that I do not have the necessary permissions to access the COMPAQ. I am unsure how to modify my administrator account to give me the permissions which I though that by being an administrator, I did not expect to have to request! Or have I forgotten to check/uncheck an 'important' box somewhere?
