Re: XP Home/Vista network
I've read and followed the steps in this article without any luck. I can see
the XP desktop from the Vista laptop, but I can't actually access the shared
folders on the XP machine.
The Vista machine is set up with the same workgroup name as the XP machine,
and it's set for no password protected file sharing. When I go to Start >
Network, I see the XP. If I double-click on the XP, I get the access denied
On the XP, I can see and access the shared folders on the Vista machine
without any problems.
Any other ideas?
