Hello all. I have a Vista Started machine with XP on the other machine. I
cannot see the Vista machine from XP and from Vista I cannot go into the XP
program files/ windows folder. Any help?

Hi,

On the Vista system, go to the Network and Sharing Center dialog and enable
remote discovery and public folder sharing. If you have other shares that
you created outside the public directories, enable file sharing as well.

On the XP system, that would be a protected folder structure and not
normally visible to a remote connection. You would have to set explicit file
shares on those system folders to see them.
