winxp small home network - file sharing

  John-197034 08:40 01 Jul 2004

i have setup a small home network between two machines with winxp. both machines have sharing enabled on the c drive. it is possible to access files from one to the other but not both ways despite admin user priviledges on both. any thoughts?

It is possible. Set the PC holding the files to allow file sharing (it's in the properties of the folder you want to share), and the PC that needs to access those files but not share it's own files to not allow file sharing.
