Hi Guys

I have just bought a new laptop and I am tryibg to send files from my old laptop to the new new one. Both laptops are on vista. I have set up an ad-hoc network and I have both laptops connected fine, however I cannot figure ou how to access the shared folders once I have set them to be shared on the host laptop. Below is the URL of one of the tutorials I have been following from the web:


I have followed a few and they are all very much the same. The part I think I am having trouble with is when I have to select the user I wish to share with I cannot see my new laptop in the list and the tutorial says select "everyone" to share on the network, but when I try to do it on my laptop it says "everyone (all in this list)" and as I have said, my laptop is not in the list.

Im clearly doing something wrong here but I really want to work this out.

Thankyou in advance to anyone that helps.
