    We have a number of users in our virtual company, and we need to share files between them. We have a new Windows 7 Home box we can use for this purpose.

    It appears that MS changes the setup every release, not a little, radically. The services and setup I knew from my XP days seems to be gone, and replaced with things I don't recognize.

    I turned on File and Print Sharing in the Administrative Tools control panel called "Features", but it did not seem to do anything. Pinging the server with AFP or SMB doesn't appear to do anything.

    Does anyone have a guide for getting this to work?

    Depending on the amount of files to be shared, you could use Dropbox.
