1) make sure no any firewall blocks the LAN traffic.
2) make sure you have created the same workgroup, and the same username on
w2k/xp for logging on a remote computer.
3) check user's rights.
4) you may want to enable guest account on w2k/xp.
5) if you are using simple file sharing, you may try to disable it and
re-share the drive manually.
6) if it is mixed OS (win98, NT, ME and W2K/XP) network, enable NetBIOS over

username logon shared computer).
10) if you have tried enabling netbios over tcp/ip but doesn't work, you may
try to load netbeui (loading netbeui may slow your network).
11) Make sure the server service is running.
12) If you can see the share in
Network Neighborhood but not access it,
this issue may
be resolved by verifying that both the share permissions and the NTFS
partition permissions are correctly configured for individual user or group
SYMPTOMS: When you attempt to connect to a
network share, you may receive the following error message:
\\Servername\share is not accessible. Access Denied. If you are
accessing a share in another domain, this message may appear even though you
have verified that the trust is configured correctly. Also, the share may be
visible in Network Neighborhood.
RESOLUTION: This issue may be resolved by
verifying that both the share permissions and the NTFS partition permissions
are correctly configured for individual user or group access.
1. When attempting to create a folder or
copy a folder on a network drive, you may receive "Cannot create or replace
xxxxx: Access is denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and
that the file is not currently in use".
2. When attempting to save a file on a network drive, you may receive "Cannot
save or create xxxxx: Access is denied. Make sure the disk you want to save
the file on is not full or write-protected or damaged".
go to the properties of the
drive>Sharing, add the the user and give Change permission.
2. Make sure everyone has Change permission.
Symptom: When opening a network folder in Windows
Explorer and then try to open a file from or save a file to that folder, the
associated program may report a sharing violation, return an "access denied"
message, or open the document as read-only. Typically, this problem occurs
when you open a network folder and then double-click to open a Microsoft Word
or Microsoft Excel file. The document opens as read-only.
Resolution: To fix this problem, go to Windows
Explorer, open the network folder that contains the file that you are trying
to open or save. On the Tools menu, click
Folder Options. Click
Use Windows classic folders, and then click OK.
Symptoms: When mapping a network drive using net
use or using the net
view command to view
a different computer in the domain, you may receive: "An extended error has
occurred" or "Access Denied" error messages.
Resolutions: 1) This issue may occur if the
workstation doesn't synchronize the time with the server. After verifying
that basic network connectivity exists, you can force time synchronization on
the client computer manually. To do this,
run net time /domain /set command.
2) Make sure you
have granted enough licenses for clients accessing.

If both win2000/XP and win9x can see the
workgroup but only win2000/XP can access a win 2000/XP computer, and win9x
gets the above error, check the group name. If they are the same name,
1) are you sure the logon user has permission to the shared folder?
2) have you tried to logon using the same user name and password of the
accessed win2k/XP computer?
3) the last and risky one, if you enable guest account in the accessed
win2000/XP computer, can you access now?
