Unable to connect to XP share from Vista server

I have a brand new HP Pavilion PC with Vista Home Premium. I am unable to connect to a share on an XP computer on the same WORKGROUP. I have re-applied the share, checked the permissions and disabled all firewalls but I am still unable to connect to the default C$. Any suggestions.

Thanks,

Make sure Network discovery and file and print sharing is turned on in Vista. Make sure the folder/drive is shared on XP.

For me and my workgroup network I always add a user that has the same ID and password to all machines. This way there is 'authentication'.

 This can not be achieved without simple file sharing. I recommend to reopen the question and split the points
