HELP! Basic Networking - RJ45

  xoxohana 18:07 23 Sep 2005

Basically, I'm trying to set up a link between my PC and Laptop so I can shift about 5GB worth of files from the PC to the Laptop using a crossover RJ45 cable. Plugged it in and set up the Networking Wizard (both computers run on Windows XP), on the Laptop, I can see that both computers show up in the same Workgroup but when I try to access the files on the PC icon, it won't let me access it, telling me that I don't have access to use the network resource etc etc... and the network path isn't found. Firewalls have been turned off and administrator status is on both computers.

I would be grateful if anyone could help me establish a network between these 2 computers as it shouldn't be difficult to do but I'm struggling!

Have you set the folders to be shared?

My computer right click the folder select properties then the sharing tab.
