Hi

I have had a quick scoot about but can't find anything that directly solves my issue so i hope someone can help?

I have two machines, both running XP Pro SP2. I have them linked via the usual crossover cable and in fact have had no problems file sharing between these machines until I went SP2 and Internet.

Quite simply I can access the slave machine from my host but not the other way around! I can access the broadband connection on both machines.

When I try to access the host from my slave I get a Logon Permissions problem.

Both machines only have myself as user and both are passworded and administrator accounts.

Excellent and thank you very much.

Discovered it was a Local Security Policy problem.

All resolved (or it seems like it!!!)
