> Hey,

> cable modem connection via a D-Link Router. With these to computers I
> want to be able to share files in-between the two of us. With samba I
> can see my XP computer with no problems. I just have to type in a user
> name and password. My problem comes in that the XP computer cannot see
> me at all. When bringing up the XP computer it is listed in Nautilus as
> smb://adam/c/downloads/. I can copy files from the XP computer to my
> Fedora computer but I cannot copy a file from my computer to his
> computer. I saw somewhere on a site that I had to make a registry entry
> for the XP computer which I did with no go. With mapping a network drive
