    I have two PC's both with XP pro and they are connected together by means of an ethernet network.
    If I make a share on PC1 and then I try to copy from the other PC (PC2) to this share the copy starts but after one minute the copy stops and I get an error message telling me that the other computername cannot be found. If I check on that computer the file is there but the size is not correct.
    When I copy a file from this share on PC1 to the PC2 everything works fine.
    That's the only problem I have with my network, all other things work fine.

    make sure that u do not have the firewall running on the machines. also check any other firewalls that u could have up (zonealarm)
