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,

This will help see the machine in the network program.

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
