  2. Hi
    There is two aspects in this issue.
    1. Do your AD-Hoc connetion actully work?
    2. Sharing.
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
    settings,http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
