File Sharing works only one way.

  biteblue 23:15 23 May 06

I have a wired home network with a ADSL router. The internet connection workes and i have run the network setup wizard. File and printer sharing is enabled and i have no firewall running. However, i can only access the shareddocs folder on one of the computer. On the others i get a message:

'MSHOME is not avaliable. Please contact the network administrator...'.

I have tried doing everythig i can think of. HELP please :)

I've just looked at both of them and followed them and everything seems to work ok exept for the shared drive on my laptop. Its not in my network places and i cannot add it either as i get the permissions message. Also when i click view network computers the computer takes 3 or 4 minuets until that message appers again.

Thanks anyway! :)

"shared drive on my laptop"

Just for the record, it's unwise to share drives; you should only share folders. Windows warns you about this when you try to share a drive.
