  1. I have xp pro on a LAN. I can read/write to other computers but no one can read/write to me. I show up on other machines under workgroup but they get "access is denied"

    You need to check the security settings in the sharing and security tab under your computer or folder. Make sure you have firewalls turned off as well. This could be preventing them from getting in.

    I tried that but no luck. Permissions and sharing are all enabled and firewalls are turned off.
