Have an XP Pro and Win 7 Pro machine on same workgroup. Trying to access administrative shares for each of the drives on the Win 7 Pro machine, from the Win XP Pro machine. Shares such as e$ and f$.
Here's what I've already done, and I'm at least getting the logon screen, however It is not accepting the logon info, and I'm positive it's correct:
Browsed to "Local Policies" -> "Security Options" changed entry for "Network Security: LAN Manager authentication level" to "Send LM & NTLM - use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated"
In the Advanced sharing settings page of Network and sharing center:
-Enable network discovery
-Turn on file and print sharing
-Turn off password protected sharing
-Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers
In “Computer Configuration”/Windows Settings/Security Settings/Local Policies/Security Settings:
Network access: Allow anonymous SID/name translation
Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users
Network access: Restrict anonymous access to Named Pipes and Shares
Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts
Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares
Also, it takes a good 30 seconds or so after typing \\old-pc\username in Run for the logon window to appear.
Thank you in advance.
