I have 2 PCs (winxp sp2) networked through a DG834 router. Some folders are set for sharing on both. I have run the Network Setup Wizard on each. PC A can access the shared folders on PC B but PC B cannot access shared folders on PC A although they are shown in My Network places. I have gone into Safe mode on PC A and set permissions to ‘Everyone’ because I get a message saying that I do not have permissions to access these folders. Both PCs can access the web. Any suggestions please
Hi you could check this out it was one of the things i came up aainst,but may not be applicable in your case but another issue to rule out.
Inability to Access Network Resources
When trying to access a WinXP computer over the network, users may receive an error message that claims they do not have permission to access the resource. This may be caused by several things. XP Home users (as well as XP Pro users utilizing Simple File Sharing) need to ensure their network Guest account is enabled and has a blank password. This is not the same as the Guest account that exists in the accounts settings of the Control Panel.
1. To enable the network Guest account on XP Home and Pro, click Start, click Run, type: net user guest /active:yes, and hit Enter.
2. Ensure there is no password for the Guest account: click Start, click Run, type: control userpasswords2, and hit Enter. Click once on Guest, click Reset Password, and then click OK without entering a new password.
Sorry moorie-, misunderstood your post, in 'run' window typed \\targa (other computer) and saw shared folders but double click on them said I did not have permission to view. As said previously, I set permissions in safe mode to 'everyone'
