    Hi,

    Please assist me in setting up File/ Folder sharing network between my PC's.

    1) Work Place Network
    Between Desktop [XP Pro] & Laptop [Vista] - Sharing internet through Beetel 450BXi ADSL2.

    2) Home Network
    Between Laptops [Vista] - Sharing internet through Linksys WRT54G.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Will the tutorial work for networking between XP Pro & Vista too?

    Done the intial setup. Named my desktop as 'OfficeDesktop' & my latop as 'SonyVaio'.

    Now I am able to view my laptop in my desktop network & vice-e-versa.

    The issues am facing is:
    1) In OfficeDesktop (XP Pro);
    I am able to access only the PUBLIC folder but others are coming 'Access Denied'.

    2) In SonyVaio (Vista Home Premium);
    I can view OfficeDesktop, but is not accessible.
    Message: "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

    Pls assist.

    From a JohnWill post:

    Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

    If you see this message the following should be done on the computer containing the shared files:

    Download the following and install it

    Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544

    after installation is complete, click on: Start, All Programs, Windows Resource Kit Tools, Command Shell

    Then enter the following commands. (Attention: they are case sensitive.)

    net user guest /active:yes
    ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
    ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

    The first command enables network access for Guest, the two subsequent ones change two different policies to allow network access for Guest.

    No, sorry. It's for XP. I thought that was the one that wasn't playing nice.

    This is only the 2nd time I've seen the "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" when trying to access Vista folders/files. I do not know of a fix.

    I included my another two Laptops onto the network; one with Vista Home Premium & the other on XP Pro.

    Same issue persists between XP & Vista.

    Pls assist as am still not able to access my XP PC's from Vista PC's.

    What is the exact problem accessing the XP? If you now have two XP machines with different symptoms, please make that clear, as I get confused easily when trying to work multiple problems. :)

    Both the XP machines face the same issue - Unable to access the Vista Folders.

    Here's a screen shot of the exact message I get;
