File sharing on Windows XP

the folks at GA Stand-up had some questions about sharing files between two Windows XP computers that are already sharing a DSL connection, meaning that they are already networked.

There are two forms of file sharing in the Windows XP land if you don't have a server - Simple File Sharing, and Professional File Sharing.

Here are two links that walk through the process for setting up each one.

Personally, if I had a choice, I'd go with Professional since you have greater security and access control restrictions.

The links:
Simple File Sharing
Professional File Sharing
