Permissions Problem
Hi Group,
I have a small home network. My main desktop is wired to the router and has
Vista home premium. I also have a second desktop and a laptop, both with XP
and both wireless. When I try to access my folders on the Vista machine from
either of the other 2, The error message is
\\Bob-Desktop\ Bob Hansen is not accessible. You might not have permission
to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to
find out if you have access permissions.
I have set all the folders to shared and all permissions to " let everyone
do everything.
I have also disabled the firewalls on all 3 which shouldn't be a problem as
I am behind a router.
The 2 XP machines access each other properly.
I'd appreciate any ideas you may have on fixing this problem.
Bob

Bob, did you have a look down the bottom of the above link re permissions,
sharing, etc.
And have you set the workgroup name the same for all computers?

Vista is different from XP in this sharing regard.
