I am doing LAN between a XP Client and and 2003 Enterprise server which is the gateway to the internet. The Internet Connection Sharing works and I can access the client from the windows 2003 server. The problem is that I cannot access the server from the client. I added a new user with administrator rights on the server and when I am logging in from the client with that username, I get a blank folder. What could be the problem?

Thanks in advance,

I got it. I had to use the command line with "net share sharename=drive:path" to get it work.
