1. Install the LLTD responder we note in our networking forum. Or just google the word LLTD
2. Now that that's working, the second step is to have an account on the machine you want to connect to. So if you are SAM then SAM on the Vista machine trying to connect to the XP machine must have an account on the XP machine.
I'll not write about firewalls.
Hi I am new to cnet so I apologise if my problem has been answered before. I have looked at other posts but cannot see my problem.
I have just bought a new laptop running Vista and have an existing desktop running XP connected to a speedtouch wireless modem via its network connection. Both machines access the internet with no problem. I have made the network name WORKGROUP on both machines and the Vista machine can see the XP one, it can also see all the folders and files that I have set up for sharing on the XP
when I try to open a folder or file on the XP from the Vista one I get a message as follows:
"\\Pent1\<folder name> is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact ........etc
Not enough server storage is available to process this command "
Pent1 is the name of the XP computer.
Does anyone have any ideas as to the cause of the problem - I was wondering about the last sentence of the message concerning storage.
I will be grateful for any help
