Hi Bob,

NTFS on both machnines. File sharing is enabled on both machines.

I ran the two command prompts. The first, "net view" returned
"System error 5 has occured.
Access is denied."

The "net use" command came back
Status - Disconneted
Local - (blank)
Remote - \\Ric\ICP$

completed successfully

Cheers

Are you absolutely sure you have the same account and password created on both computers.

The net use needs to be used to map a network drive.

So the syntax needed to be something like:

Net use x: \\server\share

where:

X: is the drive letter you want to map
Server is the computer's network name
Share is the share on that computer

Also I was asking about Simple File Sharing or not on both computers.

You can determine this by opening up the Windows Explorer
Tools / Folder Options
View
At the bottom is a checkbox to Use Simple File Sharing

See how both computers are configured.

Regarding the new view error message 5. Just did a little test and easily replicated the error.

Have two XP computers. Both have the same user accounts and passwords.
From #1, I was able to "net view \\2" - which is what I expected.

Then on #1, I created a new user that was not on #2
The new view failed with the same error message 5

So again, just to make sure everything is configured correctly as far as user accounts, I would create the same users, with passwords, on each one. Then at least you have a baseline to continue working from.

Also since one works and one doesn't who did the OS installs?
