XP PCs Have Folder Sharing Issue From Vista PC??
I have two XP Machines and one Vista Machine on a home network. The Vista
Machine can see and access the two XP Machines just fine (folders and
printer, etc). However when I try to acess the Vista Machine folders that I
have identified to share from the XP Machines, I get the famous 'You might
not have permission to use this network resource, access is denied'. I have
disabled the firewalls on the PCs to see if that made a difference, but to no
avail. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

What firewalls are you running on the Vista computer? What antivirus?

Is Password Protected Sharing enabled on the Vista computer? What folders are
you trying to access?

Re: XP PCs Have Folder Sharing Issue From Vista PC??
The standard Microsoft advice is that there is a firewall problem when
computers can see each other but not access files on a Microsoft peer to
peer network.
Most users use the XP/Vista firewall, set it up using the Network Wizard,
and have all the proper exceptions checked. Ditto for permissions, sharing,
etc. That tells alot about the programming that constitutes the XP/Vista
firewall and the fundamentals of Windows networking.
The next step usually advised is to enter a few command lines to reset the
TCP/IP stacks. This is an interesting but generally useless exercise.
If you are lucky deleting your network programs and drivers and reinstalling
after a reboot may fix the problem.
The way Microsoft networking is set up is complex and fragile. Untraceable
changes in any portion of the complex renders the whole system useless.
Unfortunately for many users the only option is reinstalling Windows so that
all drivers, dlls etc are new uncorrupted copies.
This has been a problem in Win9x, XP and Vista. I just do not understand why
Microsoft cannot make the Wizard automated process, which is how 99.9% of
users set up their networks, more bulletproof.

I can't offer much help, but...
I have an XP, a Win2000 and Vista PCs on the same network. All can
access the public folders (create, edit, delete files) on the Vista
machine, so all I can say is that it's possible.

Have a read of the above link re Vista File and Printer Sharing.
How to give Permissions are there, too.

1st thing to do is make sure that the Workgroup Name of ALL the computers is
the SAME.

In Vista Network and Sharing:

Network Discovery: ON (So it can see the other computers)

Network set to Private (Public is for hotspots, airports, etc)

File Sharing: ON

Public Folder Sharing: ON (Vista’s Public Folder is the same as XP’s Shared
Docs)

Password Protected: OFF (unless you want to set up identical usernames and
passwords on ALL computers in your Network) If you have it ON, you will be
asked for a username and password when you try to access a Vista computer
from an XP computer.

Also, run the XP’s Home Network File and Printer sharing Wizard.
