Most folk forget to create the account on both machines to setup that share. The password is the account's password.
Let's say your are "datche". You must be able to log on to each machine as "datche". That's step one. Now to share something, you log onto the machine you want to share from as "datch" and create the share. Now logout and go to the second machine, logon there as "datche" and connect to the share.
Most folk I know forget the account setup.
Hi all, i'm having an issue with networking.
I'm trying to network to xp computers together and share files and a printer.
I've successfully set up the network with a hub. I can share files in the shared folder and I can share a printer fine.
However, I am trying to share my C drive as a password protected drive. I have changed the option in the folder settings so I now see the option to set a password. I share the drive, then I go to 'select users or groups' however in the 'locations' setting it only shows the local computer and not the second computer on the network.
Any ideas why?
If i go to view computers on homegroups, both computers are visible, between that and the fact i can create a file on one and see it on the other i'm pretty sure the two are networked.
This is my last hurdle so any help is appreciated.
