xp and vista networking problems

Posted: 02-09-2009, 09:44 PM
ive got 2 computer networked through a hub to the internet.
vista can access everything on xp, but doesnt know where to place it on the
map.
xp can see vista, can see its files but cant access them
ive mcafee on both with both firewalls allowing each other connection.
now when i go to a folder in vista to share it, and go into 'advanced share
option' in goes "the program will not run, parameter incorrect". ive read soo
much on this and dont know what to do.

Hi
I assume that by Hub you mean a Cable/DSL Router.
If you do not have a Router (or you do not get the Internet from a Routed
source like a central connection of an Apartment building, etc.) then buy
one.
Otherwise, successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network
settings, http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
allowed to be shared.
