hi all just a quick coulpe of questions as i couldn't find any threads relating to my little prob.

i have a little home network of 4 pc's
3 running win2000
1 running xp-pro

i can see all computers on the network and can also ping them etc, i can join only the computers running w2k and copy files etc.
I use w2k for the main pc.
All computers will connect to the net.
The problem starts when i try to log onto the computer with xp and i get this error "Login Failure:the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"

Now i have added myself as a user on xp and w2k , also tried using the same administrator and password etc , i have disabled any firewalls that xp has , i have shared the files and folder i want to share and added specific users that have access to them , but i still can't connect.

i can however connect to any computer on the network using the computer that has xp installed
All systems running w2k have latest service and update packs as does xp.

I hope i have explained myself clearly enough and would like to know what i have missed out on doing.
regards Dan

>The problem starts when i try to log onto the computer with xp
you mean locally, or over the network?
see if this helps
Run local security policy editor from control panel admin tools and set the local policy, Network Access: Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous users, to enabled and make sure guest account is enabled

locally meqans log on to that specific machine (regardless of your local network)
You get this error when trying to access the other machines?
But you can press ctrl+alt+del and log on to the machine?

Thx Steve i found the prob either xp disabled local network access by default or i did it somehow without going into my local security settings.

Xp has it disabled by default
did running the local security policy editor allow you to enable it?
