    My problem is connecting to a shared folder. I have 1 computer running XP Pro and my laptop running XP home and connected together with a crossover cable. I tried the Network wizard but got ther same result. Both computers can see each other but when I click on the shared folders I get the "Not available.....not enough server space available.." response. I can ping both computers with no problem. I just want to transfer stuff from one to the other. Right now I have them set up statically 192.168.0.1(XP Pro) and 192.168.0.2(XP Home). I have sharing set and disabled my firewalls/antivrus but keep getting the same notification. I've run the trouble shooting wizards and searched the web but no luck finding an answer. Any help on sharing would be appreciated.:(

    Hello and welcom to TSG.
    Have you enabled network sharing on the win home pc?
    On the winxp pro you have to have an account that will tell winpro that this person can be trusted. In other words make sure you have a account in the users section.
    I have not used xppro or home to network with yet.

    Have you actually shared any resources on either computer? Open My Computer, right click on a drive, and select Sharing. Follow your nose to create a new share...
