Thanks fot that, Fruit Bat /\0/\. Sorry about the late response - been away !
Well, I tried all those 'remedies' but to no avail - still get a message "Not Avaliable".
The 'other' machine can access this one, no problem at all. This one can see the other but that's all - no access. I've been into all (?) the security settings on both and they are the same,so can't understand why I can't access the 'other'.
(I would have thought that having "use simple file sharing" checked on both would have been sufficient anyway)
