Try this on the HOST computer:
Start > Control Panel > (Left Pane) Switch to classic view > Administrative tools > Local Security Policy > Click OK (if asked) > Double click "Access this computer from the net..." > Click add user or group > type "everyone" > click ok, exit, reboot, retry.

Have enabled the folders/printer to share (the hand underneath the folder/printer). Here is a helpful link: http://www.practical...filesharing.htm
1. Make sure both computers are on the same workgroup name. If both Windows XP, right click "My Computer" and click "Properties". Go to the "Computer Name" tab and make sure both computers are on the same workgroup.
2. Disable firewalls and ping each computer.
on one machine, go to Start > run and typ cmd. Type "ipconfig" no quotes and click enter. Note the ip address down. Then go the other machine and go to the same place and type "ping *ipaddress" (space between ping and the up address you wrote)(e.g. ping 192.168.1.100). You should get replies and do this vice versa. If all replies.
3. Try searching in my network place for the files/printer. If not, search by computer name. That sometimes work. Computer name can be found where you found workgroup
