Hello matty3...

Try the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard on the XP machine. It will walk you through the whole process.

To open the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard, click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Files and Settings Transfer Wizard.

Howdy matty3...

Because networking is not really our forte', you might get more accurate assistance in the Networking Forum...there's some folks over there that are pretty sharp. Start a topic there and see what happens... :tazz:
