G'day all

I have finally upgraded from a steam-driven connection and entered the Brave New World of ISDN - Integrated Services Digital Network.

Faster, no drop-outs, no dial-up fee each time. Happy boy.

Ethernet connection between my machine and herselfs machine (both Win XP) allows internet connection sharing, our two separate e-mail configurations are set-up and tested - network settings are ON for file and printer sharing - but therein lies the problemo.

Our computers cannot seem to 'see' each other - we want to be able to 'map across' to each others hard-drives or at the very least exchange files, and use each others printers.

I'm sure the solution is but a tweak of a setting away, but it eludes me, and I throw myself on the collective knowledge of Mudcat techies.

How do I get these two machines to 'see' each other?

Cheers and thanks in advance all...
