Wireless Net sharing files/printers

  curly 12:50 25 Jan 2004

I have now networked two computers to a broadband connection. They are both capable of accessing the net individually.
How do I configure them so that they may share files and computers?

On my network (P2P) running Millenium, in the home networking wizard in My network places has the option of file & printer sharing. I think if you run the wizard on the Pc with the printer you can allow it there. I seem to recall installing printeer software on my other Pc, & then telling it that printer was on the network - I believe this is in an option in the add printer in the printers folder. I'll scratch my head & see if I can remember what I did.
