I'm trying to share files between a PC with Windows XP and a laptop with Windows 7. I've been trying to do this for years, which may have resulted in a bit of a mess, but I wouldn't know because I understand very little of what's going on.
There are two computers: Michał (with XP) and Matka (with 7). What I see on Michał is this. In Microsoft Windows Network there are three icons: Home, Mshome and Workgroup. Home has an icon of the router in it. Mshome has an icon of Michał in it, and there various shared folders. Workgroup has an icon of Matka in it, which, when I click it, shows me this:
The only user anybody is using on Matka is called Zojka1, and there is no password. But it won't accept an empty password.
What I see on Matka is this. I go to Network, and there are three computers listed there: Matka, Michał and Netiaspotdrive. Netia Spot is the name of my router. I don't know why this is listed as a computer. Michał has all the shared folders in it -- it's fine. Matka has one icon in it, called Users. In preferences, it is set as shared with "all". But I don't think "all" includes other computers, just every user on Matka. Here are the preferences. I'm posting screenshots because I don't know how to translate the various things I'm clicking and seeing to English.
("Udostępniony" means shared.)
When I click Udostępnianie zaawansowane, I see this:
I click Uprawnienia to see:
("Wszyscy" means all.)
And then under Lokalizacje, there is only one item: Matka. Michał isn't there.
Could you please help me make Matka's files available on Michał?
