    Well it depends what you mean by connect....how exactly are you trying to "connect" Netbios?, FTP, Terminal Services? Remote desktop?

    Here I go... themafia_69, I am going to help you even though you called me an "idiot" in a thread about a month ago...

    I am assuming that you are attempting to connect using a UNC path (ie: \\172.20.40.220\share) correct? This will not work if the user's administrator password is blank. XP disables network shares if there is a blank admin password. Also, you do not have authentication rights on that box. I would recommend that he set up a local account on his PC for you. Assign a password and permissions for that account. I do not believe that the guest account gives you permission to network shares, but I might be wrong there.

    Hope this helps...

    Enyo: I have helped many people in the past couple months. I do not spam, like 80% of the people on this board do. I do not appreciate being insulted and I will not stand for it. I work in the industry and I am good at what I do. I support our corporate office as well as 14 remote locations. I do software automation, RIS administration, and software distribution. I deal with network issues, software and hardware issues, testing of new software amongst other things. I make good money doing what I do and above all of that, I really enjoy what I do. I help out here because I feel that I can help others.

    SPeedY_B: I understand why you removed what I posted and I appologize. I just do not feel that anyone has any right to insult anyone else. I believe that is part of the forum guidelines, is it not? I understand that one less user would not matter much to the board because there are thousands, but I would hate to leave because I really enjoy helping others. There may be times that I do not know 100% of what I am talking about, but most of the time I do. I am an MCP and I did NOT receive my certification from cramming for a test. I passed without studying and on my first try. I believe that I know enough to help just about anyone, but I do not know everything. I feel I should be able to enjoy the board without being insulted. Is that too much to ask?

    I can take a joke as well as the next person, but a joke is usually followed by a "HAHA" or a "JK"

    If you are going to insult someone as a "joke" then make it apparent that it is a joke.

    I can see what you're saying, but I could also see that Enyo was posting in jest because in your first post you wrote
    So he wasn't insulting you.

    Obviously everyone has a different sense of humour and/or perspective so things can get out of hand, also you can not represent emotion/sarcasm in text form, so you can't tell what frame of mind someone is posting in.
    It was just a joke so I think it should be left at that, and the thread should go back to its originating topic :)

    Sorry... I have images turned off because I am at work and a lot of them are too "offensive" in a workplace environment. I will let it go.

    nevermind i found out how, u have to enable the guest account if disabled in the user accounts, change the password or remove it, and that will be the password for the remote login
