I am having major problems trying to connect with one of my pcs on the network. I have two pcs and two laptops. They are as follows: Advent PC Advent Laptop Tiny PC Dell Laptop. They all share the internet via a adsl router and that works fine. The TWO laptops are wireless and the two PCS are linked via a ethernet cables to the router. Ok now the source of the problem. The Laptops and TINY PC all sharing files fine, they can access each other with no problems. The problem lies in my Advent main PC. Now the Advent PC can access all the other machines but none of the other Machines can access the ADVENT all im getting is that awful error message that i do not have permission and access is denied. I have tried Pinging the ADvent PC and that works fine, (See below) Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600] (C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.
