Networking Problem between computers. Cannot connect to a PC (Win Xp, Win 2000)
Posted on 2007-10-02
I've been trying to create a connection between PC's. ( PC01 & PC02 Win XP Pro, PC03 Win
The following are the steps i do, but they do not always work (All PCS are under the same Workgroup):
PC01 a) I untick 'Use simple file sharing (recommended)' under Folder Options.
PC01 b) Right Click my Local Hard Disk and under 'Sharing' and 'Security' i allow everyone full access.
PC01 c) Do i HAVE to create a password for the current user?
PC02 a) Same 3 steps as above
PC03 a) Same 3 steps as above
a) PC03(win 2000) can connect to the HDs of PC01 but when i try to connect to PC02 it tells
me 'user account restriction' even though i am logged as administrator
b) When i load PC03 it always asks me for the password of PC01, (it tells me that 'the
password was incorrect' when trying to connect automatically on its own) then i type in the
password, and i manage to connect to PC01. Why is it always asking me to type in the
password, why can't it remember it?
c) Can i connect to other PC if the users dont have a password. On the PC03 (Win 2000) i
dont have one and i can still manage to connect to other PC's but the Other PC's with Win XP, they wont let me connect if i dont have a password.
c) I have another PC with Win XP Home on it and was thinking of installing it to the same
workgroup. How will i manage to connect to the other PC's since it doesn't have 'Use simple
file sharing (recommended)' that i can untick.
Thanks in advance,
