I finally got around to trying this last night (time poor!) and.......failed miserably

I'm running WinXP Professional, I tired to share a folder on my ‘C’ drive and I got a prompt saying the file sharing was disabled by default and did I want to run the networking wizard to enable it. So I ran the silly wizard and put it a name for my PC and a workgroup name, it then restarted and after hanging the first time (friggen XP!) it came back up with the directory showing as ‘shared’.

I then booted up the 1200 and entered my PC’s IP address in the host manager before clicking the ‘connect to’ button and entering my network information. I’m not sure about the user & password, is that the username password that I use to login to XP or should I just ignore it?

Anyway I couldn’t get it to connect to the XP’s shared directory and also couldn’t ping my PC from the host manager window which isn’t a good sign (maybe my PC’s firewall is blocking it?)

Has anyone got a step-by-step guide who's done this with EasyNet + XP Pro?
