    I have a network that has some win 98 machines and some XP machines. There is one XP machine that is acting strange.

    No one can access this pc through network neighborhood. We can see it but we get access denied. However we can access his pc if we go to start>run and type in \\stufine\folder. I have turned off his firewall, I have turned on his firewall and allowed file sharing and even put in the port 139 into the exceptions. I have turned off netbios and I have turned it on. I gave him a WINS address.

    I am at a loss, I don't know what to try next. He has a unique IP and he also has a unique name.

    Anyone have any ideas on what I can try??

    Thanks in advance

    No I don't. I was grasping at straws. I have tried everything I could think of.

    Pretty sure you don't need a WINS server for a simple peer to peer network. We'd be in a world of hurt if that were a requirement.

    If you can see the computer, but get an access denied, double check that you have the same user accounts and passwords on the XP computer that are being used on the other ones.

    The only users on the pc is the main user and guest. None of the other pcs ask for passwords. It just lets us in.

    Enable the GUEST account on that machine and see if you can then connect. If so, it's a permissions issue, and you need to have account(s) on that machine with the same name/password as is used to logon to the connecting machines.

    Open a DOS window and type:

    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:RESULT.TXT

    Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.
