I have a home network consisting of 3 computers using internet connection sharing and a switch. I have 2 network cards in my main computer 1 going to the cable modem and the other going to the switch. I have XP pro loaded on all three computers. Anyway my questions is that I have the 3 networked and all connect to the internet but i my problem lies when i try to see the computers next to me thry network neighborhood. I can manually map to my other computers but if i try to see the files via network neighborhood i get some access denied error. Can anyone tell me how to fix that

Thanks inadvance

The Windows XP machines are setup with much more security than was available in Win98. You have to give permission to allow a networked computer to see files.

For example, if you want to share the contents of your "my documents" folder, you would right click on it, choose properties. Then, Click the sharing tab. Select to share it, and give it a share name.

Now, you will be able to gain access to it through network neighborhood. If it asks for a username and password, enter the user/pass for the computer that you are trying to see the files on. (If you want to change that, back on the sharing/permissions tab, add your computer username and password to permissions.
