Even Experts needs help *lol*

I was helping out this guy through Remote Desktop.
I went through his Windows 7 and made sure that his windows 7 settings was perfect.

1) Confirmed his router.

2) Confirmed his workgroup and advance settings.

3) He is placed in the Home group

4) I pinged the windows xp computer and got a perfect response.

5) He *windows 7 computer* cannot see the computer in the network but if he puts \\*computer name* it will pull up that way and have full access to the shared folders

6) when he goes over to the windows xp, the computer is saying there is no network access to *windows 7* compuer

7) Both firewalls were turned off...

I am just baffled.

Windows 7 computer is: 10.1.1.10
Windows XP computer is: 10.1.1.11

that way you can ping and both his computers are in a static group.

I can now get into my win 7 machine's shared folders by typing \\computer in the address bar on the xp machine. Not sure why that changed. I still cannot see the win7 machine under "view workgroup computers". If I share with everyone via the win7 machine, I can see the file/folder on the xp machine, but if I choose share with *xp user*, the folder or file is visible from the xp machine but not accessible. The icon next to the username of the xp account has a red circle with a white cross in it in the sharing permissions tab.

Now there is no longer a cross next to the xp account name in any of the sharing properties tabs, but the files are still not accessible from the xp machine.

So you want to just create and share files between the two machine? I don't know how deep you are in with workgroup/homegroup and the likes, but if you are not in deep. Refer tut (File Sharing) in my sig and see if it can help a lil.

No. There are four machines on the network. Three are xp. Getting one of the xp machines working with the win7 machine would be a good start, so I'm focussing on that at the moment.

If I only wanted to share between the two computers, I would just put a password on my computer and give it only to my girlfriend. However, I want to share files and my printer with the other computers, but I want to be able to pick and choose which files are shared with whom.

Have you tried using usergroups?

No. I don't know anything about usergroups. Can you elaborate?

I'm not superknowledgable in groups, but in Local Users and Groups, you create certain groups whereby you can apply certain permission to these groups and have them applied to the folder permissions.

So if you want say Group A to only have Full access to Folder A, or have access to Folder A with Read only permission etc.
