    As far as I know, XP SP3 is still not released for general use.
    Eventhough it is listed as a "release candidate" it still should be
    considered as in "testing" phases.

    Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
