Access denied to Vista from XP

Posted: 04-01-2007, 12:40 PM
I have networked two PC's, one using XPSP2 and the other Vista Home Premium
(VHP).

The XPSP2 files are visible and accessible from VHP, but the VHP shares are
visible but not accessible from XPSP2 and produce the error message:

'\\VHP\c is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions.

Access is denied'.

The access permissions on VHP are set to 'Everyone' with 'Full Control'.

Any suggestions how to overcome this issue will be much appreciated.

TIA

Hi Llew. You need to use exactly the same user account and password on both
machines. Have you tried that?

Thanks,
Gloria

I have had the same problem as above but have tried the same user accounts on both PCs and still cannot access from XP PC to Vista PC.
Do you have any further suggestions?
