I've seen similar question but still acn't figure it out!

I have two PCs on a WIFI connection (WIFI + modem box)...

From One PC#1 I can access my shared folders on PC#2 with no problem - PC#2
has a Firewall but I've set PC#1 as an exception - it all seems to work well!

Now PC#1 doesn't have a Firewall (excpet for the XP one) - this is currently
disabled - however when I try to Access PC#1 from PC#2 I get the really
useful message that it can't be accessed and I don't have permission...

I can Ping from either machine with no trouble....

Any suggestion gratefully received...

LOL I like the "really useful message" part. Its certainly nicer than my
"WTF does that mean?!"
