Help with problems with sharing on XP machines

Postby big_dish » Sat Apr 02, 2005 8:02 pm

Hey Coolest!

I just saw your email about trying to get more peeps to participate, so here's one for ya!

Nobody will answer this on ocforums.com so I will try here.

I have tried a few different things and nothing works. Here's the story/setup:

Computer 1: XP pro. Sharing enabled. Win Firewall off. Zone Alarm Firewall
Computer 2: XP home. Sharing enabled. Win Firewall off. Norton Firewall configured to accept the IP's.
Computer 3 (laptop): Xp Home. Sharing Enabled. Win Firewall off. Zone Alarm Firewall

I have ran the Network Configurator on all pcs. I have setup folders on each system to be shared.

All computers belong to the same Workgroup. All cp's have different cp names. Yet when I try to connet to say \\computer1\shareddocs, it tells me that I have no access to it and to contact my Network Admin.

I have a motorola cable modem, connected to a Netgear WRG614v4 router, then the computers connected to that.
That didn't work.

I also tried to connect the modem to the router to a Netgear FS105 Switch. I get internet access, but still can't get sharing.

What am I missing????
I have been messing with it for a good 5 hours now and it's driving me up a wall. :x :x
