Accessing my Windows XP PC from Windows 7 PC


Quazatron R6 droid
OK, I have the following situation

Currently I have networked through a BT homehub my old XP rig and my new Windows 7 rig. I can connect to the windows 7 rig through my XP rig, but not vice versa.

What I have tried doing

Making sure that both computers are in the same workgroup
Giving the PCs identical accounts with identical passwords - both are admin
Making sure that "advanced" networking on my XP Home PC is turned on
The shares I want to see are shared

It seems to work - I can actually see the shares on the XP machine but it says I do not have permission to access the shares, even though I should tehcnically have permission (as the folder is shared)

Anyone know what I am missing or have seen / fixed this problem before?

Edit: I have Windows 7 7100 RC on my win 7 PC and XP SP3 on my XP machine.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
