Is there some secret guide to networking these two OS's together??
I just got a laptop that had XP home installed and my Desktop has XP Pro on it..
All I want to do is transfer files but for some reason it isn't recognizing anything?
I have them in the same work group.. I used the "networking wizard".. they are in the same IP string (192.168.1.X).. they are connected through a Linksys router.. I have XP's firewall turned off on both sides.. directories have been shared.. But I still can't see computer A from computer b and vise versa..
I've done networking for awhile now and this is just boggling.. has MS done something to prevent this??
Any help would GREATLY be appreciated.. thx
