Hi,

I need help with setting up a file sharing connection between my desktop and my laptop which are both on win xp pro using a cat-5 crossover cable. Have tried the wizards and doesnt seem to work. Any ideas?

i had the same problem, make sure the guest account is turned on, xp pro disables it by default. also verify that client for microsoft networks, file and print sharing is installed. run the wizard again and try then
