Hi,

I'm trying to add a vista computer to an existing XP network. I can get the vista to show up on the windows desktop, however it gives me 'computer is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact admin.' however, none of the xp's show up on vista. Both are running the supposed hotfix in sp3 that should allow them to be seen, but they obv. aren't.

Any help would be totally appreciated.

Hi There

Is File Sharing turned on in Network and Sharing Center on the Vista machine?

Regards
