2 peer issues

Posted: 02-23-2009, 04:54 AM

It used to be a simple matter of turning on the hard of a hard drive an
you were home. In my situation now

1. My 2nd floor Win 2000 pc can't get into my Vista 64 drives eve
though I've gone through all the settings I can find to shar
everything

2. On my primary Vista 64 machine that now has a separate Vista 3
drive, the 64 setup can see the 32 drive but not the other way aroun
that I needed

What did this have to get so hard

1. It doesn't matter that the operating systems are disparate when
transferring data over a TCP/IP network. Make sure you've created matching
user accounts and passwords on all computers. You do not need to be logged
into the same account on all machines and the passwords assigned to each
user account can be different; the accounts/passwords just need to exist
and match on all machines. DO NOT NEGLECT TO CREATE PASSWORDS, EVEN IF ONLY
SIMPLE ONES. If you wish a machine to boot directly to the Desktop (into
one particular user's account) for convenience, you can do this. The
instructions at this link work for both XP and Vista:

2. I don't know the answer to your second question about the dual-booted
machine, but do #1 in each operating system and see if that fixes things.
Otherwise I'm sure someone running a dual-boot like yours will answer.
