Thread: Can 't Access XP Computer on Network

    Hey Folks!

    I have a Pentium 4 2.53 XP machine networked with a Windows 98SE Pentium 3 500. The network was OK, but now, although the XP's Shared Directories show up on the network, you can't open them to access the files; the 98 machine's files work fine. This happens on both machines. I tried turning off the firewalls, and the Microsoft Gateway is permanently disabled.

    The XP also takes a long time to respond to the "View Workgroup Computers" command.

    Any ideas or possible fixes?

    Thanks,

    Rob

    Sharing is properly checked - the folders show up as shared on the network; you just can't open them on either machine through the network.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    and you didn't do anything which could have lead to all this...:confused:
    i mean you could use your shared folders and all, through network and then one morning you start your puters and *boom* now you can't open them?
    doesn't sound right to me...:?:
    did you change passwords of any of the profiles on your puters? do check that you are using same profiles on both the puters with same password on both of them.

    in any case i m moving you to networking, you will get more help out there.
