sharing XP files

From new windows 7 laptop through wireless home network tried to access XP desktop connected to same wireless home network. Was able to move files from xp computer to windows 7 computer but when tried to access files on xp computer from windows 7 computer got the following error after trying to click on the xp computer listed under Network in Windows 7 Computer:
Windows cannot access <computer name>

Error Code: 0x80070035
The network path was not found.

Is there a setting on the windows 7 or computer xp that needs to be set for windows 7 computer to recognize xp computer?
