sharing files/folders between two computers on winxp pro
Posted on 2004-04-08
hi i have two computers hooked up to a router. i have no problems sharing internet access between the two or playing games via lan.
the problem i do have is trying to get the two to share a folder.
on one computer, i right-click a folder and went into sharing and allowed the folder to be shared on a network but when i go over the other computer to see if i can access it, i don't see it. i don't know how to access that folder that i have just allowed to be shared. i am fairly new when it comes to home networking and stuff so can anyone help me in getting this to work? both computers are on windows xp pro.
what i did was i went into windows explorer...went into my network places, check the entire network, ..workgroups but i don't see the folder but on the computer where i set the folder to be shared, i can see the folder in my network places.
