Multiplayer won't work

I have two race simulators setup with Windows 7 PCs and want to enable the multiplayer (for the first time) so my son and I may race together. I have started a "Session" on on PC as the host using player name "Bill" (me). The session name is the default "GP4 Network Sess". When I open GP4 on the second PC, hit multiplayer and join an existing session no session names appear(?). I have both PCs set correctly network-wise with all network sharing options on, no passwork block, etc. Help!

That sounds great, I used to race with my brother using the same config.
It´s been years since we did that though, I´ll have a look and see if I noted down any tricks to get it to work....

EDIT... Noted the fololowing down in a text file...

Turn on all file sharing on both pcs, move installs to "Public" folder
use f1 graphics with particle time slices 20000 not 200000, f1 graphics controls all =1
Resolution 1024x768, 40fps on both, full detail.
CPU all in Gpx Patch, leave IP address field empty for both.
Turn off antivirus and firewall and all other background processes.

How do I access f1 graphics to change particle time slices and/or f1 graphics controls all - 1? Thanks

I'm getting an access denied message when I attempt to save these files with the edits(?). Should I edit these changes on the program on both PCs or just the one hosting a race?

Where are your GP4 installs located?

Sounds like an administrator privilege issue, on some PCs you can't modify files in C: program files.
Can you move the installation folders to the desktop on each PC and try from there?
