Three machines on ethernet, one 200 pro, two xp pro. If I use simple file sharing...no problems. But when I use "classic" file sharing other machines cannot access one machine period, the other only whan the everyone group remains. All accounts are set up as they are on the 200 pro machine, which has no problems. Is there a setting on xp pro that I am unaware of. I have tried different protocol bindings to file and print sharing, and a host of other things.

Anyone?

Thnx

Ensure you have NetBIOS over TCP/IP enabled on all the machines. Sounds like you've got this part already, but each PC must be named uniquely, have a unique IP address in the same scope (i.e. 192.168.0.*), have the same subnet, and should be in the same workgroup.

When you double click the Comptuer in the Workgroup view, does it prompt you for a username and password?

No. From win2k machine trying to access an xp machine the error states to the effect: access denied, from the other xp machine network places locks in a search never returning an error. Both xp machine have no trouble accessing the w2k machine

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
