Network file sharing

  please help 06:58 28 Aug 2003

I have four computers connected wirelessly to the hub/router. Even after I have put the files I want to share in the 'shared folder', and made sure that the two computers (the only ones I want file sharing on) have the same workgroup name, I CANNOT see the folder that I want to share on the other PC. Does anyone have any ideas?

In the network connection properties is file sharing ticked?

Yes, and I have installed the 'service' network protocol.

Have you disabled any firewalls including the XP firewall to establish if this is where the problem is originating. If this allows sharing post back and we'll look at hoe to get your firewall back online.

Yes, I have tried disabling the firewall on both computers, and we don't use the hub's firewall.

What operating system/s are you using?

The computer that has the file shared on is it the one you use as the server?

Who has permissions to open the files, and what permissions have you set?

1. Three computers are running xp home, one is running Win 98. The two computers that I want to swap files on are both running xp.

2. I don't think we're using a server!?

3. Permissions?
