hello...

i have 2 computers at home which i connected with cable.
i gave the 2 NIC's ip on the same subnet and they can c wach other.
one is running win2k and the other is running winXP.
when i try to connect from XP to 2k the authentication dialog box is appearing and i need to enter user name and password, but nothing works, i try administrator with teh right password... no good, i creat a new user with administration rights on the 2k computer but still not working.
connecting from the 2k to the xp going great.

i tried this on my friend cmoputers as well, and i got the same reasult but on the opposite direction, i can connect from the xp to 2k with no problem, but the same authentication dialog box is appearing when trying to connect from the 2k to xp.

does any1 knows y this is happenning???

Hi Mr.KnowItAll,

On the Windows 2000 PC, please do the following:
First, please share an entire Drive --> preferrably D:\ Drive. Once done:
Please goto Start --> Run --> Type CMD and press OK --> Now, please enter the following command: (*NOTE: Only enter D:\ if that is the drive you shared -- if you shared C:\ or E:\ then please enter those drives in the place of the D:\)
cacls D:\ /g everyone:f -- NOTE: There is a space between the \ and / along with a space between the g and everyone -- there is no space between the everyone, : and f
Now, try to connect to the Windows 2000 computer from the XP computer; are you still prompted for authentication?
