Another Laptop / Desktop File Sharing Query

  Holy2000 15:17 18 Dec 06

I have a BT home hub wireless router, connected to my desktop with an ethernet cable.

My laptop has wireless internet access through the router - which works okay.

Basically all I want to do is transfer files between the two.

I have tried to set up a network, but the laptop isn't showing up on My Network Places.

Also I am running zone alarm - so do I need to include the laptop IP address in the trsuted zone?

Is there anything else I am doing wrong? (I have enabled folde sharing on each machine)

Have u the same os on both machines?? then if u have use Windows to do everything. Switch off the zone alarm firewall, switch on the windows one and see if anything works. Once you get it working u can go back to zone.
