Problems with file sharings in home office network:
Posted on 2005-04-25
I have set up a simple LAN for sharing data between a Laptop and a PC using Home Office Setup available in Windows XP Pro. After the setup, both of my 2 computer is members of MSHOME workgroups and also have the same Network Mask (255.255.255.0). Then I tried to asign static IP to those two: the Laptop is 192.168.1.2 and the PC is 192.168.1.3. After all, I did file sharings on both 2 PC with full controls.
When I access the MSHOME network from My Network Places, I could see both there. But when trying to access the desktop from the laptop, there is always appears a login screen but the username is disabled, only allowed to entered password. As I setup on both computers the same account and password, I tried to enter my password in. But it doesnt accept the pass.
However, when I tried to access the Laptop from the Desktop, I could access the file sharings w/o having to log in. But I could only read, not write or modify the shared folders on Laptop.
Are there any one here could help me?
