[font="Century Gothic"]My mom and I are both using windows XP home, and as far as we can tell, we've set up our networking correctly. Here's the problem: she can access my shared folders without needing to know my log-on password, but when I try to access her shared folders, a dialog box comes up requiring a password to see them. We want to know why this is, and what can we do to fix it. Thank you.[/fonAttached File  pass.bmp   248.98KB   69 downloadst] :)

Hey samiamnurnot,

On your mom's machine, please do the following:

Step 1 - Configure your Network Policies:
Please download and install Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools (it is compatible for Windows XP and 2003). Once it is installed, please do the following:
  • Press Start
  • Select Run
  • Type cmd and press OK
  • In the new command prompt window, type these commands:
    net user guest /active:yes
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Everyone
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Everyone
  • Try to access the folders now; can you? If not, restart your machine(s) and try again.
- Dan
