I have a Win 2000 machine that can't login to an XP Pro machine. The XP Pro machine can login to the 2000 machine fine and see shared folders.

Both computers are on "Workgroup", "simple file sharing" is turned off on the XP Machine.

In Network neighborhood, the Win 2000 machine sees the icon of the XP Pro machine but when I double click the icon, I get this message:

     "\\dell4600 is not accessible... (This is the XP Pro machine)

     ....the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"

Any ideas?

Try enabling your Guest account on XP and see if you can log in with that.  If it works, rename your Guest account to something more secure.

Hi!
The username which you are using to login to the Win2000 machine must exist on the WinXP one.
For example if on Win2000 machine there are the following users:Administrator, User1
And on WinXP - only administrator

then you will have the situation that you are describing.

I hope this helps!
