File sharing requires 4 things: network, network protocol, network services, and file permissions.

Sounds like you have the network and protocol phases correct... one machine can talk to the other.

My guess is to see if the share is properly configured on XP, and if youhave sharing permissions setup on the XP box.

I think you will find it a permissions problem, as the computer is reporting Access Denied.
