    Default Windows XP networking

    I have 1 PC running Windows XP home and 1 running Windows XP Pro. I have run the Windows Set up home network wizard many times but I cannot get access to the shared folders i have on each computer. The folders from the other computer do not appear when I open my network places from either computer. I only see the shared folders that are already on the computer i am currently using. When I click see workgroup computers I can see both computers however when i click on one of the computers I get a message telling me that I dont have permission to access that computer and i should contact my server administrator. Can anybody help me please????

    This is probably the best site I have seen for network troubleshooting.

    Particularly look at the last section where it talks about the guest account and simple file sharing. Also, check your registry for the restrictanonymous key. This is a really sneaky one and one that can stump an awful lot of people. (I had this problem on a client's site and after much googling I found this solution!).

    I think you will get the solution here so good luck.

    You should have an account on each computer with the same (identical) username/password.
