I assume you are using Windows XP. You need to enable "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" in network card's properties. After that, you can share files using these 2 ways:
1) Simple file sharing in Windows XP: http://www.home-network-help.com/file-sharing.html
2)File sharing with user/group permissions in Windows XP: http://www.home-network-help.com/share-file.html
Hope this helps.. :o)
I can see my desktop computers name in my network places on my laptop and I click on it and it says its not accessible, the network path was not found. How can I get file sharing to work? I enabled simple file sharing on the desktop. Any help would be appreciated.
the laptop has windows 2000 and the desktop has windows xp home
