Home Networks

  Sie1 23:03 23 Apr 2003

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

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.
