thanks, problem with teamviewer is that i wont have a monitor or kb hooked up to the xp machine and so there would no little way to start teamviewer on the machine first unless i just want to leave the userside running 24/7

im half way there, i can see the win7 pc on the xp machine but not the other way around, so i will have to do some diging i guess to see why on win 7 i cant see my xp machine. i did follow that guide you sent in the link for the vid.

Teamviewer has an untended mode for just this purpose, you need to set it once with a fixed password and it will start with the system, you would not use it for day to day access to the stored files but just for maintenance purposes. Another "trick" is to go into the advanced options and set it to use direct connections (Lan) so you get the best quality and speed.

If you wish you can try forcing the view by setting a network location on a 7 machine pointing to the //Local IP/sharename. (the XP machine). for some strange reason even when everything is set correctly it can take quite a while for A win7 System to "see" XP shares

i will check that out, i did notice that even though the xp shows the items when i try to get into them it says (and it says this on the 7 side as well)

.......is not accessable. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the admin of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

on xp side it says access denied
on 7 side it says the specified network provider name is invaid
