Got my brother here for a few days, and we're trying to set up a LAN.
Using either a crossover cable, or a router assembly ( both work )
Both computers are on WORKGROUP workgroup.
Both computers SEE the other computer, when you go to map network drive.
My brother ( windows xp pro , SP1 ) can see, and connect to my shared folders ( windows xp home, sp2 )
1- This isnt an issue between home and pro, I installed pro on a second partition and still no-go.
I far prefer keep it with my main OS anyways.
When I go to map a network drive off his computer, I cant even open his computer name... Not enough permissions.
Tried alot of stuff, and frankly I'm outta luck and outta energy. been trying for 5 bleeping hours.
I'd appreciate if you could get this working, promptly... The whole idea was to play some games over LAN this xmas... But it's not gonna happen without you guys now.
Thanks. ( Merry Xmas to all, by the way )
