Network file sharing problem - one sided mirror?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

I got 2 boxes running win xp sp1 networked together via a workgroup & linksys
router.

PC1 can view/access all the shared folders. PC2 can only view PC2 and itself
under the workgroup. But got the \\PC1 is not accessible.... error message.

HELP! HELP! HELP!
