Desktop (HP) s running windows 7 and laptop (dell) is running XP. Trying to share files and printer. I can access shared files from the laptop to the desktop but not from the desktop to the laptop. Any ideas?
make sure both units firewalls are allowing file and printer sharing.
both should be in the same workgroup
both should have netbios over tcp/ip enabled [wins tab in tcp/ip properties]
shares should be to everyone with no restrictions
