File Sharing in between Cached Domain credentials and Workgroup
Posted on 2004-11-02
Ok...I have a laptop connected to a domain at work, and conneccted wirelessly at home. I sign on at home using my cached credentials and connect to a router for internet access. I want to share files from the home PC to the laptop and do not have to share from the laptop to the PC. I renamed the workgroup at home to the same as the domain at work and created a user id on the workgroup pc matching my domain credentials. I cannot ping the IP address or the DNS name of the PC. They are on the same subnet, and both are XP SP1. Only after installing Netbeui on both machines can I see the machine from the network explorer and I get the access denied. The domain at work is AD if that means anything.
I searched this entire site and some had resolutions that did not work for me.
What is going on here?
