[Lucid Beta2] How to put the gnome-user-share to work?

Hi,

yelp: "gnome-user-share is a session service that exports the contents
of the Public folder in your home directory, so that they can easily
accessed from other computers on the same local network. On the other
computers, the shared folder will appear with a name like »'users's
shared files« in the Nautilus Network window. gnome-user-share uses a
WebDAV server to share the Public folder, and advertises the share on
the local network using mDNS." 
On computer 2 I have copied a file in ~/Public. On computer 3 in the
same LAN Nautilus shows under 'Network' only a »Windows Network« of
unknown type and no notification. Avahi works all right though. Why does
this file transfer not work?

Kind regards,

Detlef Lechner
