Hey all, i set up a network, 1 comp running vista 64 bit, other xp sp3. They are sharing internet connection, but i cant see the shared folder on vista machine, i shared my documents on the xp, but not showing up on vista.
I already made sure they have the same workgroup name, simple file sharing is enabled on vista machine. turned off windows firewall on both, both use avg antivirus.
What else can i try, i have done this once before and it worked, not sure what im missing.
Can anyone direct me to a step by step for setting up this type of network?? please.

Moved from Vista to a more appropriate forum. Tw

Follow this site. Even if you've already done the steps, do them again. Just to make sure. Don't skip around.
