Networking Vista to XP machines

Postby Rus » Wed Mar 07, 2007 2:50 pm

I have just bought a new PC with Vista Home Premium on it. It is setup on my network. I have 3 machines running XP Home and Pro. The problem is, the Vista machine can see and access all the XP machines, the XP machines can see he Vista machine, but cannot access the Vista machine. The drives are shared on all machines. The error message is:
????? is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find oot if you have access permissions.
Access is denied.
I have checked all the permissions to accept everybody. Any help and suggestions would be appreciated.

Make sure sharing is enabled and that password protected sharing is off on the Vista PC. On Vista PC go to Start>Network>Network and Sharing Center and check all the entries under the Sharing and Discovery heading.

For more information on these settings, go to Start>Help and Support and in the search box type "sharing files with the public folder" then click on the result item with that same name (should be result #1).
