I am having a bit of a problem between XP and Windows 7.  Both laptops are members of the same domain.  I have a share setup on both laptops.  While connected to the domain network I can view the share in either direction. However after disconnecting both laptops and plugging them into a private network I am no longer able to browse from the XP laptop to the Windows 7 laptop.  Windows 7 to XP still works.

I have completely disabled all firewalls.

Using to XP laptops everything works just fine with cached credentials. Is there a setting some on Windows 7 forcing the connecting laptop to use a domain controller for authentication?

When you are are disconnected from the domain you can no loger user domain account to access the share.
you will need to connect to you windows7 machine with a local user account configured on that computer. And the domain part of the logon needs to be replaced with the windows7 computer name.
example windows7\ctscrew2
Also make sure you have file and print shareing enabled.

one workaround you could do is to setup identically named accounts on the laptops as they exist in the domain - with the same pwds...

then you could use local authentication all the time and not have to worry about whether cached acct security if functioning correctly or not...

Ended up using the password manager.  Pretty much the same as setting up users on each machine.
