I have 2 computers, one with Windows XP Home and the other with XP Professional. I have connected them with a LAN cable, and have succesfully played Medieval Total War using both computers. However, I cannot transfer files between them. One recognises both when I select View workgroup computers, but the computer with XP Professional displays 'Mshome is not accessible'. I have run 'Set up a home or small office network' many times without success. Any ideas please.
I always set the ip address manually 192 168 0 1 for first pc and 192 168 0 2 for the second with subset mask 255 255 255 0 for both. make sure sharing is enabled on both hard disks. I have lately found it not sufficient to just share c but to go into each folder and share that as well.
