Cases: Can't share between Vista and XP

Postby chicagotech » Tue Feb 06, 2007 11:33 pm

Both Vista and XP have been enabled the file sharing and the windows firewall set to allow file sharing.

1. Vista can access XP but XP can't access the Vista. Problem: McAfee antivirus in Vista blocks incoming tarffic.

2. XP can access the Vista but Vista can't access XP. Problem: McAfee antivirus in XP blocks incoming tarffic.

Comment: I also have file sharing problems on my Vista/XP network. One solution (such as yours) is to have the SAME user name and password on BOTH computers! I don't know if this will help or not, but having to do this is ridiculous! My computers are used by 2 different people, with 2 different habits, 2 different lives, etc. We have individual preferences, and to suggest that we rename one to the identity of the other is just plain foolish.

Maybe this works, as I said, but it shouldn't have to. We should be able to share whatever files/folders we want without changing our identities.

I should have stayed with Atari!

Thanks for listening!
