Cannot see Vista's computer from XP Professional
I have 2 computers, one is running Vista Ultimate, and 1 is running XP
Professional. In file sharing, Vista can see shared file in XP.
However, computer running XP cannot see shared "Public" folder In Vista.
Vista's computer already grant right to everyone to using "Puiblic" folder.
I saw a "lock" icon appear inside the networking icon from networking setting
in XP, actually not only network, even 1394 networking. What's the problem?
How to solve it?

Thank you for help in advance.

RE: Cannot see Vista's computer from XP Professional
Kim [MS],

I have a home network with four computers running XP Home, one computer
running XP Professional (Version 2002, SP 2), and a new Sony Vaio laptop
running Vista Business. The Vista laptop can access folders on all of the XP
computers. However, only the XP Home computers can access folders on the
Vista laptop. The XP Professional computer cannot access folders on the
Vista laptop.

The XP Professional computer can "see" the Vista laptop (in workgroup
computers), it cannot see any folders on it (not even the public folder) and
it cannot access the Vista computer. When I try to access the Vista computer
from the XP Professional computer, I get the message "[Vista computer] 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 denied." I am, of course, the administrator for all
computers. The XP Pro computer is registered as a user with adminsitrator's
rights and full access on the Vista computer. I double and triple checked
the passwords and user name and all of the permissions to make sure the XP
Pro computer is fully authorized in Vista.

The XP Professional computer can access folders on the other XP computers.
I have looked at the two help files you posted before. They are not
pertinent. The Vista and XP are computers are all configured in the fashion
suggested by the help files. I have created users and passwords for each XP
computer on the Vista and, of course, on the respective XP computers. Any
help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Re: Cannot see Vista's computer from XP Professional
Try creating a new user with admin rights on all your computers. Be sure
file sharing is enabled on the Vista computer. The real ADMINISTRATOR
account in Vista is hidden so being a Vista user with admin rights is
different that an XP ADMINISTRATOR.

Eric,

To start, I would check the NetBT setting and any personal firewalls. This
sounds like an SMB issue.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/07/advanced-windows-networking-using.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2006/0...ing-using.html

And check an obscure setting, restrictanonymous.
<http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/07/restrictanonymous-and-your-server.html>
http://nitecruzr.blogspot.com/2005/0...ur-server.html

If that doesn't help, look at "browstat status" and "ipconfig /all", from each
computer, and diagnose the problem. Read this article, and linked articles, and
follow instructions precisely (download browstat!):

Re: Cannot see Vista's computer from XP Professional
John,

Your suggestion worked. It took a while for the XP Pro computer to update
the antivirus program, so I could not test the new logon name until that was
done, but it worked. Chuck, thank you for your response. Fortunately, I
will not have to implement it. Thank you both again.

Re: Cannot see Vista's computer from XP Professional

Check your norton internet settings. You need to allow the other
computers access through it by entering their LAN IP address. This is
how I got it to work.
