Unable to access Notebook from desktops(Vista and XP)
I have a LAN at home with three PC's. There are two desktops and a
laptop. For purposes of the problem lets name them System1 (XP Pro),
System 2 is Vista Business and System 3 is a notebook with XP Home.
System 1 can see and access the drives on System 2 and System 2 can
see access the drives on System 1. System 3, since it is XP Home,
requires me to login to go to the other systems. However, once logged
in can see and access the drives on Systems 1 and 2.
The problem is that neither System 1 or System 2 can access the drives
on System 3.
When I try to access system 3 from system 2 I get the following
message: Network error,
Windows can not access System -3 ,
Error code 0x80070035
The network path was not found,
Check spelling of the name. Otherwise, there might be a
problem with your network. To try to identify and resolve network
problems, click Diagnose.
When I try to go to System 3 from System 1 I get a Connect to System 3
screen where the User Name shows as System-3 Guest and then it asks
for a pass word. When I put in the pass word that I use on the
network Windows rejects the pass word. I never saw this screen till
now and do not know how to get rid of this problem. The
System-3\Guest is grayed out so I can not edit it.
Hopefully, someone can help me with this problem.
