to see if file and print sharing is enabled on the Exceptions tab of Windows Firewall.
I have two comps running Win XP connected by a cross over cable. Master is ntfs file system other is fat 32?
I have used the Win XP wizard to set up a LAN
On my master computer I can see all the shared folders on the slave comp and have full access to them.
The slave computer however does not seem to be able to see the shared files on the master comp
I have tried turning off the firewall but this makes no difference.
The slave comp can access the internet via the master comp
Have you any ideas on how I should proceed to get two way transfer of the files?
Please keep the advice non technical if possible
Secondly Is it wise to have a firewall and anti virus on both machines or just have them on the machine (master) that is connected directly to internet via a USB connection to broadband modem
