Hi. I have a desktop and a notebook, both XP SP2. I used to use Network Magic to network both machines and uninstalled it because it uses a lot of resources. Now the issue begins. I had tried to re-network both machines but there is a "access error", I know I have to close fire wall, antivirus and other staff. In the network-IP-properties which additional services should I install to make my new network setup works? Thanks.:rolleyes:

You don't need any additional services. Are these XP Pro or XP Home?

more info needed percy, such as are these computers connecting to each other through a router? or directly connecting to each other? im assuming you are attempting a wireless connection, have you tried a wired connection?

I found the problem. It was my firewall. I just had to configure the firewall settings in detail particularly the IP range and ports access. I have XP Home and Pro. I am using NIS2007. Thanks for the post. I really appreciate it.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
