ANOTHER vista - xp sharing problem
There's so many out there, none help. Great job making it easy.

Anyway, I'm adding XP onto my Vista network, or at least trying.

I've been getting slowly yet surely closer...

Right now, I can see Vista from XP, and I can see XP on the Network Map on
Vista. I just cannot access the folders that I have setup to be shared [
right click, share ]


I'm really lost right now because I've read so much on this topic.

I don't know if this has anything t do with it, but, I also cannot connect
to the internet on XP...It's connected at 100Mbps, but nothing works [
messenger programs, internet browsers, etc... ]


Bah, I'm not sure what to do, can anyone help me finalize this file sharing
problem...?

If you can see each other but access, it could be the permission issue. Make
sure you assign permission in the Security tab. Or this search result may
help.

Vista Permission IssuesCan I assume the external drive used to be connecting
to other computer and you just re-connect it the the Vista? Check the
permission using this command: . ...
