Hey,
I have to computers. I want to be able to print from both and share files. I set up a network, and for some reason on computer A when I click "view workgroup computers" I get an error message:
Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The list of servers for this workgroup is currently unaivalble.

On computer B, when i click that(view workgroup computers) I see both computers listed(A and B). Also, on A under "My Network Places" I don't see any shared folders, unlike on B. I have clicked "share this folder" and nothing happens. please help!
Thanks

you have a problem with the firewall, I would guarantee it. You need to get into the settings for your firewall and enable networking.
