I have read that file sharing from Windows to Android device should work with ES File Sharing. I have latest update of Windows XP and GingerBread version of Android.

Are these incompatible or what is missing when I have an exception of login failure and I am still trying anonymous login and even files are shared to EveryOne?

Is the problem possibly related to smb protocol because the address in properties is


? I suppose XP makes shares with different protocol or am I right? How to connect that share then if that is the case?

So question in short:

has anybody got this combination to work and how?

I am not sure why or how, trying to log in using credentials usually works better.
