I'm breaking my head on this problem for many days.....and finally
can't figure out the problem....I'm in great trouble please help
Two of my machine running Windows XP is connected through as crossover
cable through ethernet card. I've configured everything
Login as Administrator
Proper IP address
Can ping from either computer
Disabled firewall(Zone Alarm/Windows)
I've shared the internet connection with windows ICS, which is also
working fine on the client computer....but unfortunately I cannot
access the shared files on either computers. Whenever I click icon of
the other computer in "My Network Place"
on the either computer it show a error...."\Jack is inaccessible,
you might not have permission, contact your Network Administrator.
Please help me...waiting for a reply

Sounds like either permissions are not setup right or File and Printer
Sharing is disabled on the 'internet' connection (which is the same port on
the client machine as your network with ICS). XP Home, or Pro?
Check your ethernet port for File And Printer Sharing turned on.
Xp Home should default to simple file sharing so look at your shared folder
properties and see what permissions are set for 'everybody'.
