Sharing from Vista ultimate to xp on a laptop
I have a desktop PC running Vista Ultimate Ed, and I hooked up a Western
Digital 250gb external usb hard drive. I am trying to get it to where I can
save from my laptop running xp to that drive as well. When I check the
permissions, the option of adding my laptop's user isn't even an option.
What can I do to give my laptop open access to the drive?

Thanks in Advance,

Gavin

Gavin,

With peer-peer networking, you have to setup local accounts on each computer.
If you disabled Password Protected Sharing (PPS) then you can simply enable
Guest. If you enabled PPS, then you have to setup identical accounts, with
non-blank password, on both computers.
