Can only copy files one direction

I have a wireless network with XP home on one machine and XP pro on the
other.

On the XP Pro machine I can copy and move files from the home machine.
On the home machine I can copy, move,open etc files from Pro to home but
can't copy, move, save files to the Pro machine.

All accounts have admin privileges, no passwords. I can see everything
shared from both machines and they show as shared.

What am I doing wrong?

Mike,

What error do you get when copying from Home to pro? Are both computers
wireless?

On the XP Pro computer, check to see if Simple File Sharing (Control Panel -
Folder Options - View - Advanced settings) is enabled or disabled. With XP Home
and Pro on the same LAN, you need to have SFS enabled, for simplest results.

On XP Pro with SFS disabled, setup and use a common non-Guest account on all
computers. Whichever account is used, give it an identical, non-blank password
on all computers.

On XP Home, and on XP Pro with Simple File Sharing enabled, make sure that the
Guest account is enabled, on each computer. Enable Guest, with Start - Run -
"cmd", then type "net user guest /active:yes" in the command window. Ensure
that the password for Guest is blank, with Start - Run - "control
userpasswords2"; select Guest, click Reset Password, click OK without entering a
new password.

Remember, with Simple File Sharing, you'll not be able to access "C:\Program
Files", "C:\Windows", or any of the profile related folders such as "My
Documents". All of those folders require individual user, or administrator
access, and Guest access gives you neither.

On XP Pro, if you're going to use Guest authentication, check your Local
Security Policy (Control Panel - Administrative Tools) - User Rights Assignment,
on the XP Pro computer, and look at "Deny access to this computer from the
network". Make sure Guest is not in the list. Look at "Access this computer
from the network", and make sure that Everyone is in this list.

On XP home, when you share a folder, it automatically sets the permission on
all the folder and files inside to public or something.

On XP pro, it does not do this, so in addition to sharing the folder, you
also have to set permission on the folder and files to permit whoever wants
to access it.
