If you have a firewall, make sure you configure it so that the IP address of the PCs is local, or ' friendly'. Otherwise you'll only see the PC name on the network, you won't be able to access the folder, even if the folder is shared.

To share a folder, right-click on the folder name in Windows Exporer and select ' shared ', file and printer sharing has to be installed to do this.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
