Network/file/printer sharing has been working ok. Laptop has win ME and desktop has win2k.
Now the laptop can see the desktop on the network but asks for a password to connect to it. Nither systems have any passwords configured?
The desktop has full access to the laptop.
The message received is "password for this connection \\Base\1pc$" The laptop is called LAPTOP and the desktop is called BASE. The workgroup used is the same name on both.
The internet is accessed by the laptop through ICS on BASE. However this is not available either?
