XP Home computers cannot access shares on XP Pro computers
Posted on 2004-04-10
I have 2 Dell XP Pro computers and 3 HP XP Home computers. When I create a share named "AANewShare" on one of the Dell XP Pro computers the only computer that can access it is the other XP Pro computer. The XP Home computers receive "Access Denied" messages. The shares show up in My Network Places. The same users and passwords exist on all machines. They are all NTFS and the "Sharing" and "Security" are set so that the "Everyone" group has "Full Control." The problem does not exist with shares created on the XP Home computers. Also, there is a share called "Timeslips" on the same XP Pro computer that allows access from the XP Home computers.
