Vista/XP networking problems
I've read many of the posts on this board, but I'm still unable to solve my
network woes.

Windows XP desktop: installed SP2 and LLTD protocol
Windows Vista laptop: configured as specified in this forum
Both computers share the same work group

Status:
XP can see Vista but cannot access files: "Access denied"
Vista can see XP computer when clicking 'View full map' but cannot see the
computer when exploring the 'Network' tab.

Any thoughts on next steps?

Re: Vista/XP networking problems
Some questions that will help in troubleshooting.

What versions of XP and Vista?

Do you have the same user account and password on both computers?

What firewalls are on both computers?

What is the location of the files you are trying to share on the Vista
computer?

Re: Vista/XP networking problems
XP home edition
Vista Home Premium

There are three accounts on each computer. Two of the accounts are
identical on each computer; the third one is different.

Firewalls are disabled on both computers.

For now, I'm only using the Public folder on the Vista computer to share
files. If I can make that work it would be good enough.

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.

RE: Vista/XP networking problems
Thanks Mick. Unfortunately there was no new info in the article which could
solve my problem. I already have all of my settings as specified in the
article along with what you recommended.

The unusual part is that my Vista PC can see my XP PC when I click 'View
Full Map', but it doesn't show the XP PC when I browse 'Network'.

Jason,

The "... access denied ..." error is very versatile.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/06/mysterious-error-5-aka-access-denied.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...ss-denied.html

I'd start by diagnosing the network setup, using logs from "browstat status",
"ipconfig /all", "net config server", and "net config workstation", from each
computer. Read this article, and linked articles, and follow instructions
precisely (Download browstat, and read how to run the Vista command window as
administrator!):

Browsing is NOT active on domain.
Master name cannot be determined from GetAdapterStatus.

net config server will not run. access denied, error = 5

I will post my XP setting separately.

At a first glance, I couldn't debug the problem, but I will keep reading
your website to see if I can figure this out.

OK, Jason,

Let's start with the browstat logs.
> Browsing is NOT active on domain.


That's not the problem, but that's a good descriptive symptom. That's why you
can't see one computer from the other.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/04/nt-browser-or-why-cant-i-always-see.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...lways-see.html

The browser requires NetBT. I don't see any indication that it's not active, on
both computers. For instance,
>Server is active on
> NetbiosSmb (000000000000)
> NetBT_Tcpip_{1241E8B3-8382-42D6-A808-FC2C840389A1} (00184dfdf1c2)


The most usual problem in this case would be a misconfigured or overlooked
personal firewall of anti-worm component, blocking SMBs. What anti-virus do you
use?
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/07/advanced-windows-networking-using.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/0...ing-using.html

Other possibilities. Davis-Laptop has a nVidia network controller.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/02/hidden-personal-firewall-nvidia-nforce.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/0...ia-nforce.html

And IPV6. We still find situations where disabling IPV6 is the only solution.

OK, Jason,

Let's start with the browstat logs.
> Browsing is NOT active on domain.


That's not the problem, but that's a good descriptive symptom. That's why you
can't see one computer from the other.

http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...lways-see.html

The browser requires NetBT. I don't see any indication that it's not active, on
both computers. For instance,
>Server is active on
> NetbiosSmb (000000000000)
> NetBT_Tcpip_{1241E8B3-8382-42D6-A808-FC2C840389A1} (00184dfdf1c2)


The most usual problem in this case would be a misconfigured or overlooked
personal firewall of anti-worm component, blocking SMBs. What anti-virus do you
use?

Other possibilities. Davis-Laptop has a nVidia network controller.

And IPV6. We still find situations where disabling IPV6 is the only solution.

And compound problems are always a possibility. If you make any changes, make
one at a time, and test after each change. Be slow and methodical, please.
