Default Problem with Sharing Files on a LAN

I'm trying to share files between my PC and another PC on my newwork. I've ran the windows network setup wizard on both, opened them for file sharing, and enabled sharing on the folders that I want. Both PCS are on the same workgroup as well.

Whenever I click on "view workgroup computers" in My Network Places, I can see the other computer on the network. But when I click on it, it says access is denied. When trying to access my computer from the other one, it works fine.

Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Have you got passwords setup on both of them? To make it easy, just set the same user and password on each machine, and see what happens then.

you might also want to try to shut down the firewall and then transfer the files.

If file sharing is enabled then windows firewall will have created an exception for that. Totally different tho if your using a 3rd party firewall.

Oh, good point. I'm not even sure what type of firewall the other computer has.

yeah, usually I've had to disable the firewall so that I can transfer the files.
