I added an XP Pro machine to mt small home network. It is connected w/a wireless connection. It can "see" the network and other computers; the other computers can see it; but I am denied access to it from the other computers. What setting(s) am I missing/what do I try??

It's pretty hard to know what you've missed without knowing what you've done. What operating systems are on the other machines? If it's Linux you'll need to enable a server to share files with Windows machines.

Firewall?


According to the XP Pro machine, the firewall is configured to allow this machine to share files and printers.
BTW, the other operating systems on the network are Win98SE and XP Home. I am using Verizon DSL and their gateway...the 98 machine is connected wireless and had no trouble joining the network. (Actually the XP Pro is showing up the the neighborhood, it just won't allow access from the other machines.

I have Win98Se, XP media ed., and XP Home. The machines can "see" the pro machine in the network (neighborhood) so I have the workgroup and connections ok. I have Verizon DSL and use their gateway. (One other two of the other machines are wireless and I had no trouble getting them operational.) During the setup, the network setup claims that the firewall is configured for sharing files and printers, but the reply when I try to access the pro machine is Access Denied.
