help please. I have set up a home network between my desk top on XP professional and a laptop on XP home. I can share the printer and use the internet on both. When trying to share the desktop's files I can see them on the laptop but can not open them. It tells me that I do not have permission, should contact the administrator to the desktop and 'access denied'. I have tried giving full access to these files but to no avail. Am I missing something? Is there another security setting? I am running norton on both pcs but disabling this seemed to make no difference. All help appreciated Thank you

Hi

Have you tried "sharing" each file individually?

I found that just sharing th main directory will not help.
