    Are you running a software firewall on the Win2K machine? Anything Symantec
    (Norton) or something like ZoneAlarm. If those aren't set to allow traffic
    from the other LAN machines, they'll not get access.

    The router's firewall will not block any activity within your LAN.

    Are you sure you have Windows F&P sharing setup properly?
