Computer 1 (Patrick): WinXP Home (service pack 1)
Computer 2 (Raymond) WinXP Pro (service pack 2)
Computer 1 can see Computer 2 and can access all shared files. Computer 2 can SEE Computer 1 but gets the following message when trying to access it: "\\Computer 1 is not accessible...access is denied"
Both computers are using an antivirus program, F-Secure, with built in Firewall but this problem occurs when both firewalls are entirely disabled. Additionally, all windows firewalls are disabled.
In my search for solutions to this problem, I have also enabled netbios. Not luck.
I'm a fairly advanced computer user, so if you need more info I'd be happy to comply. The sharing is not essential, but this problem has become more of an annoyance and blow to my ego than anything else.
