Re: Disconnections to shared folder on Vista Enterprise x86 SP1 server from XP SP2 Pro client

Posted: 02-05-2009, 05:03 PM
I am still encountering this issue, and have moved this topic from
vista.general to vista.networking_sharing (which I did not see earlier). I
configured the XP SP2 system to use NTLM v2 only, and this change did not
fix the issue.

Thank you for the post.

I noticed you created another thread which was a duplicate of this one.

In order to avoid confusion and keep track of troubleshooting steps, I will
close this thread as a "Duplicate" and continue troubleshooting the issue
in the original thread in vista.general.

Thank you for your understanding.
