Hi All
I've got three pc's networked, all originally with xp home, i have recently installed xp pro on one of them and now find that the xp pro pc can see the other xp home pc's on the network but neither of the xp home pc's can see the xp pro is there an answer to this? or is this what makes xp pro more secure any help would be appreciated.

checked their all in the same workgroup, can they ping each other? are you using firewalls if so which?

when you installed xp pro the folder permissions were probably reset, right click on the file/folders you want to share and click on sharing and security, tick the "share this folder on the network" box and click ok
