Greetings: I had a server crash in a small network. I removed the server and changed the workstations over to a workgroup. I can see the other computers but when I try to access them I get this error: Logon failure: The user has not been granted the requested logon type for this computer. Windows XP Professional is on 4 stations and Windows 7 Pro is on 1.

What do I need to do in order to do file sharing etc?

You realise that now, when connecting, you need to use a local user account (for each computer) and that local account should have the appropriate rights?

I have tried logging in as administrator, no luck. I then created a user and password on both machines, still no luck.
