Windows 7: Sharing Between Windows 7 and XP via crossover cable

Sharing Between Windows 7 and XP via crossover cable

I've searched through the forums and other places, and tried many "solutions" but they don't seem to work. So the situation is I have two computers, Windows 7 and XP. They are connected via a crossover cable. Currently, I can access my shared folders on the XP computer from the 7 computer, but I can't access folders on the 7 from the XP. I can map the network drive, but it says that is not accessible and access is denied.

I configured the network settings and disabled the firewalls so that both computers can ping each other. On the Windows 7 computer, I have made the network identification into "Work". I believe I made the correct options for the "Advanced Sharing Settings" tab. They are both in the same work group. For the shared folder on the 7 computer, I went to "Advanced Sharing", checked the box, and allowed "Full Control" for "Everyone" in the "Permissions" tab.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
