One Way Peer to Peer

Posted: 03-24-2008, 07:27 PM
I have two Vista machines, a desktop and a laptop. both in the same
workgroup
I have enabled Network Discovery, File Sharing, Printer Sharing and Password
Protected sharing on both machines. (I have also tried with the firewall
turned off)

The problem is that I can only access shares on the notebook from the
desktop

Desktop -> Notebook -> shared folder works

Notebook -> Desktop -> continuously prompts for a password.

I am logged on to both machines as an administrator with the same user name.

Any ideas how to get this working both way please ?

With the same password or do you use blank password?

Turn off Password Protected sharing, or create the same user account name(and
a password) on both computers. You don't have to use it, it just has to be
there.

Sounds like a misconfigured firewall then. Many antivirus/security programs
have a firewall component. You need to check what you are running to make
sure two firewalls aren't active. If you are using any third-party firewall
at all, you need to configure it to allow the LAN as trusted. Double-check
on the machine you can't access.
