    I have a network in which each computer will connect to the internet. The Win 2000 will connect to drives and printer on the Win XP. The XP will connect to the internet, but will not allow me to share printers and files. I have set all drives and printer to "share". When trying to map a drive on the 2000, I get this message.

    The mapped network drive could not be created because the following error occurred:
    The account was not authorized to login from this station.
