Help please,
I have joined two computers together using ethernet cross over cable and configured host computer and every thing is fine for the internet side on both computers.
The problem is with files, like my antivirus program I make them shared files or folders but I can not find them on my other computer.
Has any body got any ideas?

Shared folders will be visible in My Network Places.

This should be on your desktop, but is also available in My Computer.

What OS and soft firewall do you use?

Yes I found it on the second computer but when I click on it a window pops up and tells me( it is not accessible, the network path was not found.)
I am using winXP on both computers and the antivirus I am trying to access is PC-Cillin 2005, on my host computer.
Any more ideas.

What firewall?

I had to configure my firewall to allow networking to work for me!

As seventhstar says it's probably a firewall (PC-Cillin 2005) issue.

Norton IE 2005 which I use has a wizard to setup your home network to allow sharing files - PC-Cillin may do the same.
