Unable to manage desktops after SP 2 is installed

I have several desktops running windows XP Pro w/ SP2 on a domain... I used to be able to access all their drives remotely from the domain controller ( \\desktop1\c$ ; \\desktop1\d$ ) .  I noticed systems w/o SP 2; I can access.  How do configure SP 2 to allow management?

Have you disabled the builtin windows firewall that came with SP2 to see if that is the cause?

There is an option for networked machines that should allow you to manage them on the firewall config

Thanks Colin,

I didn't check the exception "File and Printer Sharing" ; It works now.
