I have a workgroup of Windows XP PRo with sp 2 machines  connected to a Windows 2000 server .Everything is fine but on some computers when i  try to access a different computer on the same workgroup it gives an error which says i do not have permission to acess the computers .I have taken the following steps before posting here
1.The username on my machine and the machine which iam trying to connect are same along with the password.
2.Both the users are Administrators
3.No policy has been defined to restrict access.
4.Checked for viruses and spyware found none
5.Netbios over TCP/IP has been enabled .I can Ping each other .
6.Tried disabling the windows firewall , no other firewall present .
7.Reset the Winsock , just in case .
Please advise

In workgroup you have to share that folder with full permission within that workgroup and you can ping to that pc check with administrative rights like in run window type \\computername\d$ or you want which drive to access then give the username /password =administrator / password .Also you cehck with \\that computer IP address \ share folder or that drive ( like d$)..

Here's something to check:

X  Windows XP (at least PRO) defaults a setting in Local Security Settings to something very unhelpful.
If all this does not solve your problem, check Local Security Settings, Network access: Sharing and security model for local accounts.  This may be set to (default) Guest only - local users authenticate as Guest.  Change this to Classic: local users authenticate as themselves.

Start/run: gpedit.msc
   Local Computer Policy
     Computer Configuration
      +Windows Settings
         +Security Settings
           +Local Policies
             +Security Options
         
          Double-click on Network Access:Sharing and Security Model for local accounts--
                 --change to "Classic - local users authenticate as themselves"

Try switching to Simple File Sharing.  My computer > Tools > Folder Options > View Tab > Scroll all the way to bottom and check "use simple file sharing".  No go back to the folder you want to share, right click > sharing... and share that folder.  

Hope this helps.

Check you netbios node type in the registry on all the workstations. They should all be set to decimal 8. hkeylocalmachine=>system=>currentcontrolset=>services=>netbt=>parameters. On the right make sure dhcpnodetype is 8.
