HI, going mad here..

Triing to set up a home network, but get this message do not have the right to acess this resource..
This could be that you have no password..

Do think i remember the last time i set up a network, that i had to have a user name to acess the resource.. Can`t find a possibility to add user/password for this share..

I'm using xp on both computers with a router. When i go into my network places, both computers show. But i can't acess the sources on the other computer, only the one i'm sitting with..

Hi sitdown,

ok couple of tests

if you start run \\machinename of the target machine from your machine, can you access its shares? can you post the exact error you are getting

do you identical accounts on the machines?

\\computer is not accessible. You might not have permisssion to use this network resource. Contact...

Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions or a policy restriction has bee enforced.

Yes, have identical accounts on the other machines.. Admin, Thomas...

I have disabled both firewalls and also tried disable router firewall.. Could it be the windows firewall on the one machine? I have disabled it, but when the pc start up and i go into security center it shows that firewall is on.. i go into settings and there it says it is off.. Press ok, and after about 2 min it goes off in security center..

disable the firewall under services.msc, disable is starting to, whilst your there do the same for security centre - they both suck!

Crazy..

Would not belive this...!!!
I did two things, not quite shure what the solution was..
I passworded the two accounts named "Admin".
I also added user Admin for its own computer for one of the folders on both computers. With full access to the folder. But before this the user everybody had full access...

One other thing.. all my hardrives goes back to default share through this prosess. Isn't this strange? For c: the share is: C$ and comment is default share..

If you can expain this you might get some points eitherway :-)

if you fixed yourself im not after your points :)

but you can have non passworded accounts in a workgroup as your above message said, it just doesnt like it

the C$ share is the default administrator share and should usually be avoided to use for security reasons, better off setting up another share

>>>>I also added user Admin for its own computer for one of the folders on both computers. With full access to the folder
not sure what you mean there

Well, what i ment was.. When you share a folder you can add a user or usergroup to my shared folders. I could not find admin for the other computer on my laptop, thought mayby this was possible. Since my shares origionally had rights to all users and i added user admin, this was probably not the problem?
So not using password was the whole problem.. ?

Well i want to give you 100 points anyway, because the things you said with reading other stuff got me understanding what to do. Is this ok? :-)

This site is better than using originally suport channel of producers, as Asus and so on..

Gday Thomas,

the problem would have been the non passworded accounts, the password also have to match on the machines as in a WG group environment you can only search locally for users, not across machines, thats why if you log on with a user on one machine, and try to authenticate to another, if the user accounts match, authentication is allowed - does that make sense??

if you want to give me the points thats great, but well done on finding most of the solution yourself :)
