Default Can't share my files on network.

Okay, I have a little network between my brother's computer, and my own, on a router. We have shared files before, but I've recently run into a problem when I got Windows 2000 Pro. I can access files he has, but he can't access mine.

1. File and Printer sharing is enabled
2. I have folders setup for sharing on my secondary HDD.
3. Other users have full access to the folders and Security is set to "Everyone."
3. I've gone to check my local security settings and "Access this computer from the network" has: Administrators, Backup Operators, Power Users, and Everyone, on the list.

When my brother sees me on the Workgroup, he clicks on me to see what I'm sharing and it says he must have a password before it even shows any of my shared folders.

"We are the knights who say...NI!"

Try using the password of administrator if you have provided any for your 2000 pro system and then connect.
