[HELP] Connect Win 7 Ultm - XP Pro SP3 Using LAN Cable

Greetings to all..

I'm a new member here. And also this my second day running my PC on win 7 ultimate. Not yet activated.

This last few hours i've got a lot of dizzy trying to connecting my old laptop with win xp into my PC win 7. And surprisingly win 7 use a new 'method' on sharing files with another computers.

Usually when i connect my 2 win xp pc, all i need to do is just setting up the IP addres for both pc and then plug up the LAN cable. Done, the xp connect themselves.

I did this one on my win 7. But it doesn't works perfectly. Both my pc and laptop were connected. i can see them on my windows explore network menu. But i can't browse the containing folder that shared on xp pc. And also on my win 7 pc.

Basicly, both my pc looks like already connected, BUT I CAN'T browse the shared folders that manually i set up to be share.

Plese help me how to connect win xp and win 7 ultimate properly.

Thank you.
Big regards.

Hi Raditz and welcome,

Did you add EVERYONE to permissions in Windows 7 shared folders?

Did you enable network sharing in the advanced Sharing Settings?

Here is an image. I'm not on my 7 Machine.

Yes, I did add EVERYONE to permissions in Windows 7 shared folders.
Yes, I did enable network sharing in the advanced Sharing Settings.

Now my win 7 PC can browse (read and write) the folder of XP that I shared. But my XP can't browse the shared folder on win 7.

Does anybody can resolve this?
