I am running Win XP (latest update). Firewall is on, but set to allow file sharing. (There is no differance when I turn the firewall off). I am using a direct hard wire connection between two computers both on XP. The network connections between the two computers worked until I had to refomat one of the computers and reinstall everything. I set up the MShome network etc.,again but I do not see even my own computer in Microsoft network! My computer is set for file sharing etc., but I am really at a loss. Obviously I am doing something really simple wrong!!
Any help would be appreciated.
