Sometime we forget the simple procedures and remember the complicated one
(getting too old !).
Yes we had the 'Network Discovery' and File Sharing' set properly on both
side but, forgot to work on the step 'Password protected sharing', and to
turn it 'Off', to let other users enter the 'Public' folder of the Laptop
Apparently, Vista wants to be more secure and as a by product, we make
simple mistakes more often.
File transfer is working OK now. We can transfer files back and forth to all
users in our group.
Thank you so much. Appreciate your quick response and help.
