three machines, one windows 7 home, 2 windows 7 professional
all have "turn off password protected sharing" clicked
all three have shared folder c:\data
the windows 7 home machine can map drives to both professional machines (after entering password).

problem ... both professional machines CANNOT map drive to home machine - the password process fails.

home machine = mend01
professional machine 1 = mend02
professional machine 2 = mend03

when trying to map from mend02 to mend01, the attached screen is displayed (the network password is not correct) - I have tried using domains mend01 and mend02 - everything fails.

any ideas?
