Ok well no answers yet hope so will follow. I did get a network up and can use remote desktop to access the original computer. My question is..Is there away to use both computers at the same time accessing the same drive? Everytime I use computer 2 to access the computer 1 drive it locks the computer 1 out and if you try to use computer 1 it logs off computer 2. Is there away so i can use both at the same time or would I have to have a 3 machine and use the original as like a server then the 2 remote machine could access it at the same time?
