Hi. I have XP PRO. When I go to sharing on a folder, I do not get the same window as my friends, to set permissions. All I have is a check box to share the folder. I do not have options to set permissions. I have a home network, not on a domain. It is a workgroup. I am wondering if there is a service that is not running? Thnak you.
