Home Networking Workgroup Blues
Posted on 2006-10-21
OK. I've spent about 2 hours trying to figure this one out and I'm stuck enough to offer it up to the "gods" (Gurus on Duty!) for help!
I have a small workgroup of four computers. The purpose is strictly for printer and file sharing. Two are running computers running XP home and two XP pro. All the computers can see each other in the "Show the computers in my workgroup", but the two XP home computers cannot access (nor see) the shared files, drives, or printers on one of the computers running pro (named Jane). And when you click on Jane from the workgroup "diagram" (from "Show the computers in my workgroup"), it prompts with a domain username/password box.
I must have toggled a switch wrong somewhere, but I'm unable to decipher where! I have disabled the Norton Firewall as well as the Windows Firewall, so what do I do next?
Thanking you in advance, mhs
