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.

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