problem file sharing between windows7 and XP

I have a windows7 computer with a folder that I would like to share with an XP computer.  I am using password-protected sharing because the homegroup feature is not available on the XP machine.

I have set up a standard user and password on both machines - username xxx and password yyy.  I have made sure that password protected sharing is enabled in the Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center/Advanced sharing settings.  I right-clicked on the folder, selected share with specific people and enter the username into the share list.

I can see the windows7 node in the explorer list on the XP machine and can access the public folder.  However, when I try to access the other folder, I get a message saying it is not accessible and to contact the network administrator.  Since the network administrator, is me, I'm turning to you.

Thanks in advance.
