I have 2 Computers on my network, 1 - XP PRO and 1 - XP HOME. When i'm on the Computer using XP PRO and click on " View Network Computers " I can see both computers and ACCESS both computers. BUT if i'm on the 2nd computer using XP HOME and click on " View Network Computers " I can see both computers but CANNOT ACCESS the other computer. What can I do to change necessary setting on the XP HOME computer so I can access the SHARED FILES from the XP PRO computer..??

Same situation when I click on " My Network Places "
XP PRO shows: SharedDocs on the computer i'm on
XP HOME shows: SharedDocs of BOTH computer

Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated...

Hi Paul,

First things first Is the firewall enabled on your XP PRO, do you have password setup on the XP pro. These might be some causes.

Are you getting any error when access XP pro from the XP home machine.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

LIFE is so simple, if you know the reason of your existence at certain place. Treat every step as first one and trust god, friends, relatives and everyone.


Its a simple magic trick given to me by one friend also and I am at this stage  :love4u:
