File sharing one way but not the other?

By chrisdman ·
I have XP Pro on my laptop and XP Home on my desktop PC.

My Desktop will see the files on my lap-top fine but it will not work the other way around.

I have made sure the file sharing is turned on and have run the network setup wizard a number of times (enabling file and printer sharing).

The net connection is shared fine (net connection into the laptop) over the network to the desktop.

The are connected by a cross-over cable.

Thanks for any help.

with file and print sharing without a server you'd would wise to install NETBEUI on both machines for testing. see if you can view both machines across my localnetwork. As it's peer to peer make sure that XP PRO boot's first and logged in as it will become your master browser. If this option works check you TCP/IP settings especially NETBIOS.
