The ridiculously hard part is figuring out how it's done in the first place. Several hours poking around in Help and Support (by both of us) was extremely unfruitful, with nearly every page starting off with some assumption that you had some familiarity with it already, paradoxically. For example, one page started off talking about the Incoming Connections icon in Network Connections. Huh?? What Incoming Connections icon??? If I had that, I would have been able to figure out how to get it going from there. Anyway, I'm interested in other ways of setting it up and in locking down the security. Also, my co-worker can get into my drives, but I haven't been able to get into his, so I guess I'll have to look at things on his end, or else I need to get a step-by-step list of what to check for for setting up sharing on WinXP. We're both familiar with setting up sharing, so it's probably some stupid trivial thing somewhere that's stopping it. -- Best regards, Scott mailto:Wizard@xxxxxxxx To unsubscribe from this list send an email to pcductape-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with 'unsubscribe' in the Subject field OR by logging into the Web interface.
