Don't forget about the firewall built into XP. You don't see the
shares because of the firewall but they are still there.

Subject: Accessing Winxp shares
I have observed a couple of thing while pen testing a windows
While i could connect to Win2000 machines using net use command(knowing
the admin password) i could not do so on Winxp machines. How should one
connect to default shares in WinXp?? Also that after installing SP2 in
WinXp the default shares are not visible. Does this mean that there are
no default shares available. Also that can we connect to default
(ADMIN$) share from linux?? I tried to connect using smbclient but could
not. In all the cases i was knowing admin password.
Thanks for any help....
