not able to access shared folder from one computer to another on home workgroup
Posted on 2006-06-04
I have the same login and password for my two computers computer1 = winXP, computer2 = winServer2003, both on my home network. Both computers are a member of the same workgroup. I also have the same login and password for both computers. I set up a shared folder on computer 2 and try to access it from computer 1, but it will not automatically authenticate me.
Previously, it would automatically authenticate me because my login and passwords where the same on both computers, but for some reason, something changed, and now I am not being logged into the winServer2003 box not authenticated with the NT username and pass.
This is a big pain (also causes problems while using SqlServer Management Studio).
