xp home office network
Posted on 2009-06-26
Need help getting my home office network setup.
I have one pc that connects directly to a router, which is connected to the cable modem. This computer is the host.
I have a laptop that connects to the internet using it's wireless modem.
Now I am trying to get shared files working between the two. I've run the xp network setup wizard on both and the host can see the shared files on the laptop. However, the laptop can not see them on the host.
The laptop can see the workgroup that the network uses. I can even see the host computer under the workgroup. But when I try to access the host computer, i get "is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."
If this is the case, I am not aware of how to change those permissions so the laptop can see the host. Thanks.
