I am running XP on several home computers which are already networked
via a Linksys router and Vista Home Basic on a Dell Inspiron Laptop.
I have been able to get the Laptop to join the network and share a
network printer hooked up to one of the XP machines.
The problem is network file sharing. From the laptop I can open ALL
the shared folders on all the XP machines and retrieve files, etc.
But from an XP machine I can "see" the Vista laptop as a member of
the MSHOME network, and I can even see the shared directories I have
designeated on Vista, BUT I cannot open any of the vista shared
directories and actually access the files located within the
I get a message that I do not have privileges (even though I am the
sole user "administrator".
I have turned off password required file sharing...I am at my witís
end to figure why I canít access the files of a directory that I can
access on the network.
Thank you for your time.
