WinXP & networking...need some help.

I'm having some issues getting networking setup exactly the way I want under WinXP. I have the simple sharing turned off and it's back to the traditional way as found in NT/2000. If I have the built-in firewall turned on for the adapter I can't connect to it from my other workstation. However, if I turn it off, I can get it but it doesn't even prompt me for a userid & password. I made sure the Everyone was removed from the share. In fact, I set up a new share with a single user for it and it still didn't prompt for userid and password when I remotely connected. I'd also like to get an FTP setup going again. Should I use the built in feature or go for an outside product to do it?

You wouldn't happen to be using a domain admin account on the first system would you? Or, using a username and password on the first system which are the same as a username and password on the second system?
