i have connected 2 winXP computers together using network cables. the main computer has the network IP set at 198.168.0.1 while the other computer is set at 198.168.0.2 . now, i had alreasy shared both computers' hardrive, but theres a problem where the main computer can see and access the other com but this com couldnt access the main computer. it needs "permission". and i had already disable firewall...but still no solutions.

can someone help?

first of all, you would probbly be better off using the network wizard to set up the connection between the two machines. If you have XP with SP2 it will sort the firewalls for you, secondly make sure you have created an account with the same username and password on both machines.

thanks for replying

firstly i had to set it up manually because the network wizard doesnt work on both computers-it encounters a "error". and both computers are SP1.
