Mixed Win7 / WinXP network issues (again)
Yeh i think we have covered everything in this thread that needs tobe covered.

The issue of not able to share is either a networking issue, or a permissions issue. Not an OS issue.

As for Rep, lol, unless you ask for it in your sig, you aint getting it. Which is a shame cos that sort of throws the system's integrity off the line

cheers ya'll.
