Windows firewall is a "starter" that doesn't block outgoing. After that, make sure file sharing is checked for all computers on network. chuck
I have two computers in a small office network with plans for two more to be added. Both computers have the Windows XP service pack two operating systems. The two computers are connected by a Netopia router with cables.
Computer 1 can access all shared files on Computer 2 including printer.
Computer 2 can access the printer of Computer 2 and the DSL connection, but cannot access the shared files on Computer 1. The computers are operating in a Workgroup on a peer to peer system.
Computer 1 is operating with the windows firewall blocking access of sights not approved. I've tried many things including turning the fire wall off. Can you give me an ordered steps to solve the problem.
