Unable to access a shared folder on Windows XP Pro peer to peer network.
Posted on 2007-12-05
I recently performed a Windows XP Pro repair install on a peer to peer network workstation. After the repair install the Shared Doc's folder will not permit other network computers to access it. Windows firewall is turned off. There is no other firewall present. Simple file sharing is turned on. The Network Setup Wizard has been used repeatedly. There is a group name, but no domain name being used. Permissions are set to allow other network computers to see and to change data in the shared folder. Error says, "Access Denied. Folder is not accessible. You might not have permission...."
