    This should be easy for me, but I just can't seem to get it to work :)

    Got a laptop and a main pc; both have duplicate accounts so it's a workgroup situation, both XP Pro. The thing I'm struggling on is the ports in my firewall (Comodo).

    I know it should be 137-139 (i think) and 445? Don't know what to allow...anyone know what I can do to let the share commence?

    Thanks in advance,
    Fsimeta

    run the network wizard again.
    do you have simple fle sharing enabled or disabled...
    can you ping the machines from each other?
