Win 2k and Win XP
Posted on 2006-06-28
I'm having a small problem with accessing a windows 2k computer from windows xp. I'm working on a medium sized LAN and all computers (bar one) are running XP. None of the XP machines can access the windows 2k computer, but yet the win 2k computer can access all the XP machines. When I try to access it via start->run and tying in "\\win2kcomp" I'm prompted for a user name and password. I enter the Admin name and password, and then get a message telling me I don't have permission to access it.
If I try navigating to it via My Network Places, I don't get asked for a password, I just get the message.
But yet, if I try access any computer from Windows 2k, I get access wothou being asked any passwords.
Networking isn't really my thing, so I would appreciate any help I can get.
