Hi All

Have networked 2 xp home machines, one laptop, one pc. The pc can see the shared folder on the laptop but the laptop cannot see the shared folder on the pc.

Have i set thisup rihgt, can anyone run me through the process. One was set up as the server (PC) and one as the client (Laptop).

Any help gratefully appreciated.

This is more than likely caused by a firewall on the desktop blocking the laptop from connecting to it. Check the firewalls logs and add the laptop to the Trusted Zone within the firewall.

If you have an problems then someone should know how to add the laptops IP address into the trusted zone with your specific firewall.
