LAN file sharing


Recommended Posts

Hi (again). I set up a home network (wired) a wile back just so that my siblings and i could have access to the internet. Now that component works fine but i also want to be able to share files.


I made all the 'work groups' on the Pc's the same and that has sort of worked in that the Pc's pick each other up, however when i click on my mothers 'shared folders' file (from my Pc) it gives me the error "Access denied... you might not have permission "etc I have tried turning off the firewall on my mothers Pc but still nothing !!


Any help appreciated !!


P.s From my mothers Pc i can access my 'shared folders'.

P.p.s I have Xp Sp 3 on all Pc.

You can see the computer and the shared folders but get an error, so it sounds like you don't have the permissions set to allow access. You need to get properties on the shared folder and set it to allow at least read access.
