right i am expanding my home network, at the min i have 2 xp x64 costom built one conected to the hub the second through a lan to the 1st and then hub, and a vista advent laptop conected to the hub.

i am trying to shere files back and fowerd over the network instead of useing pen drives. the 2 xp x64’s comunacat perfectly on a peer to peer. hawever i am having trouble geting the vista laptop involved in this, i have got it to a piont of the vista will not find or reconize the xp’s, but the primary xp fineds the vista (only wen asked to shurch for it, though i naw have a shourtcut on descktop) and nows wen i change any shered file. but wen i ask the xp to accsess the files i want it says basicly accsess denaiyed, obviously cart try vista accsessing xp files coz it sayes it dont exist (even wen surched for)

can anyone tell me were i need to work? as this is giving me a head ache lol.

as always thank for any feed back i still need to hook up a xp x32 laptop but hope that will be easyer lo thanx ppl love ya all

32 bit or 64 bit will not make a difference they are shareable, even the OS does not make a difference ,files can be shared between all types of OS all the time.

I would suggest a step by step go thru and see if something was missed.
