thanks

Have you made sure the shared documents folder is actually shared! Right click on shared docs and select sharing, tick the box share this folder and allow users to change files (if you wish) .

Make sure that you have at least one folder set as "shared" in each PC and that any firewall software is configured to allow access to the networked computers. In Zone Alarm this is done by adding the IP addresses of the PCs to the Trusted Zone.

Firewall software is the most common problem for being able to access other computers in a network.

Oops! Should read for being *UNABLE* to access...
