Hrm, interesting. My laptop is 2K, and my home comp is XP. I share resources from XP to 2K without a problem; shares, printers, the works. No problems, and my lappy is part of an entriely different domain than my home comp. However, to see if I could offer any more adive I tried sharing some folders and a printer in 2K and tried to connect to em from XP. Nothing. I can't access the shares or see it on the network. Even an "nbtstat -A" with my interanl ip returns nothing. Everything works fine if XP is sharing, but absolutely nothing the other way around. I'll play around a little more and see if I can't come up with something.
