I am having problems sharing resources on a Win XP home PC. I seem to have everything setup the way I should according to numerous online articles, but nobody can access the resources on this PC.
The PC is on a peer to peer network.
It is sharing a printer and a folder. When I am logged onto that computer I can click Start > Run and type in \\188.8.131.52 which is the IP address of the computer and a window pops up showing the shared resources.
When I do this from any other PC on the network I get the following error:
"\\184.108.40.206 is not accessible. You might not have permissions to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.
Access is denied."
I thought permissions were not an issue in XP Home, only in XP Pro. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft File and Printer sharing on the machine and that does not help. I have the same problems connecting to it from all machines, Win XP Home, Win XP Pro, Win 98
