I hope someone can help me out. So I have this small network with a total of 4 computers: 2 Windows 2000 Professional, 1 Windows XP Home, 1 Windows XP Professional. I struggle for a while to get them all to see each other on the same workgroup, but finally working it out....I think. I keep having connection problems with the XP Home pc. Every couple of days it will not let you access the mapped drives to the other computers and the other computers can't see it, but the 2000 and XP Professional computers can always see each other. I usually have to re-map everything. Is there something I am missing here? Did I not connect them together properly in the first place?
The only way I could get them to see each other was to enable the guest account and create a mapped drive to each computer with the guest user id and password. All of the computers log in with the same user id and password (not the guest) but I can't connect to either of the XP computers with that id/pw. So I guess my first problem might be the mapped drive connection. Then there is the lost of connection to the XP Home computer. Any help would be great.
