Access to only one PC through Router on XP Pro
Posted on 2004-10-22
Hope you can help, it's driving me nuts.
I've set up a small home network using a Linksys 4 Port Router & 2 PCs running Win XP Pro. I can connect to the internet from either machine okay, & I setup both PCs using the Network Setup Wizard (I chose the "This PC connects to the net via a Network Hub" option) & I can see each machine on the Workgroup (MSHOME Network), I can access my 2nd PC fine, but when I double-click on the ICON to connect to the 1st PC from the 2nd, I recieve a message saying I don't have permission.
Also, when I check Network Places from my 1st PC, I can see my 2nd PC's Shared Files, but on the 2nd PC, I ONLY see it's files, the 1st PCs are not showing up.
Anyone know why I can access one machine fine, but be denied on the second?
Thanks in advance :)
