    Hello all,

    I have two computers that I am trying to share files between. I have
    everything matching on both computers re: workgroup name, file sharing turned
    on, file sharing enabled on hard drives, etc.

    On the Host machine I can see both computers in the work group, but on the
    client machine I cannot see the Host computer, only the client. What gives?

    Thanks in advance to all.

  2. 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.
    Vista File and Printer Sharing-
    Windows XP File Sharing -;en-us;304040
    Printer Sharing XP -
    Windows Native Firewall setting for Sharing XP -
    Windows XP patch for Sharing with Vista -
