Well folks, I’m trying to set up network file sharing between an XP machine and a Vista machine. Thing is, Vista is new to me.
I have been told it’s perfectly possible but I’m having trouble figuring out how. I have done some reading up and am none the wiser.
I run the network setup wizard on XP. I save settings to aUSB stick and try running it on Vista but it has an error.
I can’t find a similar wizard on Vista… but I read somewhere that Vista automatically allows file sharing on a network as long as a folder is ‘shared’. Doe this mean that I don’t have to do anything to the Vista machine?
What about the Vista firewall? I’ve allowed ZoneAlarm on the XP machine access from the Vista machine but I don’t know what to do on the Vista machine (which has Vista’s own firewall - not my machines, doing for a friend).
Any help or guides?
