Home Networks

Hi. Ive just set up an ad hoc home network using two computers, both running XP Home, using ICS wizard and wireless adapters. I can connect to the internet using the "slave" computer. The problem that I am having is that I cannot share folders between the two computers. It appears that neither computer can see the other. I get an error message saying I do not have permission to use this network resource. I am logged in as administrator on both computers.

Any help gratefully received

Regards

Have you switched off the firewalls on both pc's.

When you used the wizard did you select file sharing.

I had a mess after posting my problem and "Twas a firewall issue, verily". I've sorted it now but thanks for the advice. I'm now feeling a little foolish. Lol.

Regards
