Home Network
Hello!

I am having Vista Business without any password configured. In my small
network at home (the other pcs are Win XP), the Vista PC can access the
shared drives of other PCs, but my other PCs can't access the Vista's shared
drive, although the drive letter icon has indicated that this drive has been
shared (but when right click this drive, the SHARE tab was blurred out)

Any help appreciated.

Why do I need passwordFor the reason, Vista may disbale the sharing for
remote access if you use blank password. What you can do is setup auto
logon. These links may help, ...
