Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type Win Vista Home Premium/ Vista Business.

Have tried to make the accounts the same.
I can access from the Vista Home Premium machine to the Vista Business.  We will call them VHP and VB from now on to make it easier.

Made one account the same.  
I can logon with an account from VHP to VB with no problems.  I get the logon failure error trying to go from VB to VHP.

Please help me resolve this.  Both systems are also 64bit systems.  Really the only difference is Home Premium vs Basic.  
One is a laptop and one is a desktop.  Laptop is wireless using same router as desktop.

Have you tried using the computer name in front of the username before connecting (computername\user)?

So you're trying to access file shares from one machine to the other and vice versa?  And you have identical accounts (username and password the same).  They must be local accounts too, not a domain account on the VB.

And have you seen this previous EE post http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Windows_Networking/Q_21482719.html

Mr. rbarnhardt.

Yes I have.

Mr. Theras2000.

They are local accounts.  I do not have a domain controller.   I will take a look at the post and see if it can help.

I'm still having the issues.  I had a work around for a little while since I can see from one computer to the other.
Recap:
Computer one can see the shared files on computer two.  But computer two cannot see the shared files on computer one.  When trying to logon I get.
"\\one is not accessible.  You might not have permission t use this network resource.  Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

Logon failure: the user has no been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

Then I can just click ok.

Thanks

Ok.  Tried a few things since no one has responded lately.
First.  Change the computer name.   Failed
Second.  Disabled all security and firewalls.  Failed
Third.  Checked security on Router.   Failed
Fourth.  Rebooted both machines   Failed
Fifth.  Tried accessing via IP and any other ways I could think of.  Either same error or some communictions error.

So is it computer two or computer one.  Went and got another laptop.  XP Pro.  I get the same error message on the XP pro computer when trying to attach to one.  EXACT SAME MESSAGE.  

So something is definately wrong with computer one and it's networking ability.
Win Vista Home Premium.

Still looking for a solution.

Make sure the guest account is enabled on Vista Home Premium.

1) Right click "Computer" and select "Manage."

2) Expand Local Users and Groups and select "Users"

3) Ensure the "Guest" account exists.  If not, create it.  (It should be there by default but disabled.)

4) Double click the "Guest" account and remove the checkmark from "Disable this account." If it exists.

5) Examine additional settings and change to your liking and apply any changes.
