I have four computers on my network. 1 running windows Vista Business. and 1 win xp pro. and the other two win xp home. all are set up and can access the internet most of the day. the problem is I cannot configure them so I can see them on my Vista computer, or any of the computers. what am I doing wrong? any help would be welcome.
yes I have four computers running Vista Business, 1 xp pro and 2 xp home. I have downloaded the (LLTD) Responder from microsoft and installed it on to the xp pro.I can now see the xp pro icon under network and sharing. I cannot access the the xp pro pc. it comes up with I cannot access this pc you may not have permission to or something like that.
I have downloaded the LLTD Responders and installed them on the three windows xp computers? That is 1 win xp pro and 2 wind xp home. win vista business already installed. all computers are on the same workgroup. I can see the computers but cannot get access to the computer. says I do not have permission.
This is due to NTLM hash compatability (V1 to V2) and the fact that Vista has the compatibility mode to off by default.
Read here from google.
To allow NTLMv1 or LM challenge-response operations, first become a user with Administrator rights. Next, run the program secpol.msc. Under Local Policies then Security Options, there should be something that reads, "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level." By default, "Send NTLMv2 response only" is selected. There are a few options available, but choosing "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated" seems to make the most sense. Everything should now magically start to work if using non-NTLMv2 aware systems.
Thank you for your answer. Not tried your solution yet but will soon? I have resolved this question but to do so I uninstalled my Virus protection and bought windows live one call. To my suprise I can now see all computers and communicate with them? Being a suspicious person I am begining to think, have microsoft put something in their operating system to stop persons configuring their computers without first buying one call? This I can believe. Anyway I think this thread is ok now thank you again.
