I've been trying to troubleshoot this problem for days, with no success.
--I have 2 computers networked, the host (connected to the Internet) running XP Home, the other XP Pro. (The XP Pro has simple file sharing disabled.)
--I've run the Network Setup Wizard multiple times, but continue to get the Access Denied error on both machines.
--Firewalls are disabled on both (including Windows Firewall)
--I can see both computers using 'net view' and the IP address in a command window.
--Both computer have the Guest account on.
--I've checked the "restrict anonymous" key in the registry, and it is set to 0.
Thanks a million...
SOMETHING NEW--just noticed that the shares on the XP Pro computer are showing up under "The Internet." Why would this be?
UPDATE--I just noticed that my logon user name does not match the name of the folder in "Documents and Settings" on the XP Home computer--is this a problem?
