I have 2000 pro & XP Pro networked in the same room using ethernet and 5 port switch. The XP PC can see and access the 2000 PC, the 2000 PC can see the XP PC but when trying to access it get "access denied" message. Both are in same workgroup, different names, same IP addresses apart from last number, NetBEUI is not enabled on either. Seem to have tried everything, any help would be much appreciated.
Firewalls are disabled and the shares aren't password protected. I did have the 2 PCs working for a short while, then I restarted the XP machine and lost the connection. Also, I can ping either PC from the other.
