Sharing Doesn't Work

I have a big problem in sharing my sharedocs on or network. I had enabled all permissions, turn off the firewall but still I can't access my documents remotely.

Please help me. Thanks in advance.

Often a username/password issue

Windows prefers that all users have a password and that network sharing be done by defining the same usersnames and passwords on all machines that share. Any clues there?

Addendum....also look at firewalls

This includes 3rd party such as Norton. Your local area network needs to be exempted.

I am not using a third party firewall. I turn off xp firewall. I am just confused why I can't share it.

Is there a remedy about this? Is there a way that I could reset my network settings as if it was in a fresh installed xp pro?

Back to usernames and passwords

Do you have accounts with the same username and password on all machines needing access to shares and are these usernames listed in permissions for those shares?
