    Windows Netjerking!

    Hey there!

    I'm in dire need of help here. My computer crashed out on my this afternoon. Now I've managed to rescue it to a certain extent but need to do some backing up so I can format my HD. What I want to do is network to my roomies computer so I can shuffle files over to his pc for the time being. That is turning out to be more of a problem that I thought it would be.

    We're connect via a hub and 10BaseT cable. We're already networked to provide internet access to each pc but I'm having problems setting file sharing up. I cannot access his computer with mine and vice versa.

    CAN ANYBODY HELP ME?!?!?!

    1) Make sure you have NetBEUI installed on both computers.
    2) Make sure you and your roommates computer have unique computer names associated with them
    3) Make sure you and your roommates workgroup is the SAME
    4) Make sure "File and Print Sharing" is enabled
    5) Make sure you have at least 1 thing shared

    That should do it. Hope that little check list helps
