Let's say your pc's account is jacky. Is there a jacky account on the other machine?
I have a home network consisting of a XP Pro SP2 desktop, a XP Pro SP2 laptop, and an xbox. When I explore the network by clicking on Entire Network->Microsoft Windows Network, I can see both the desktop and laptop computers. However, I cannot connect to the desktop from the laptop and xbox. It says I might not have privilege to connect to it.
But when I manually type in the links in explorer on the laptop, I can connect to the shared folders on the desktop. I just can not click on the computer name of the desktop and see what is inside.
They are on the same workgroup. I disabled firewalls. I have guest accounts enabled on desktop. I tried running the "Set up a home or small office network" on the desktop but didn't work.
Can someone please provide me some pointers. Thanks in advance!
