Permission denied when trying to access host computer from another computer
Posted on 2004-10-11
I am not an networking expert, and I do not know alot about networking. However, our small company has two computers linked together through ethernet. Both computers can view each other through the "view workgroup computers". However, only the host computer (P4) can access the non-host(P3). However, when i try to double click on P4 from P3 under "view workgroup computers" it says something like "unable to access P4, please contact your network administrator" or something along those lines... I think maybe i need to tick something somewhere on P4 to allow P3 to gain full access to it. Both computers are running WinXp Pro. And i have managed to get the printer to work with both computers simply by setting it up in the printer options.
Someone please help ASAP, its really hard to do my job without the two computers networked properly.
