Connecting Vista to XP shared folders, Access is denied. Why?
Hi. I am running Vista Premium and want to access my XP Home shared
folder.

I can access the printer fine but when i try and open the shared
folder I get the error:


\\Pc-Name\SharedDocs 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.

Access is denied.


Well i am the admin but i cant work it out, the XP can connect to my
Vista's public folder but not the other way round. It finds it without
a problem but cant access it.

Is there a way of allowing XP to allow access from my Vista?

Thanks in advance

If you can access the printer but not shared in XP, I would check the permission first. Also you may create the same username of Vista in the XP. This link may help too,
