Password protected sharing on XP.
by Datche - 1/15/13 4:44 AM
Hi all, i'm having an issue with networking.
I'm trying to network to xp computers together and share files and a printer.
I've successfully set up the network with a hub. I can share files in the shared folder and I can share a printer fine.
However, I am trying to share my C drive as a password protected drive. I have changed the option in the folder settings so I now see the option to set a password. I share the drive, then I go to 'select users or groups' however in the 'locations' setting it only shows the local computer and not the second computer on the network.
Any ideas why?
If i go to view computers on homegroups, both computers are visible, between that and the fact i can create a file on one and see it on the other i'm pretty sure the two are networked.
This is my last hurdle so any help is appreciated.
