I have two computers running Windows XP Pro with simple file sharing enabled. My wifes computer can access mine with no problems. HOwever, when I attempt to access hers I get the following message. " \\computer name\C is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Not enough server storage is available to process this command."
In the event viewer it says "Server configuration parameter "ipstacksize" is too small for the server to use a local device. Please increase the value of this parameter." I have encountered this problem in the past and I don't remember how I fixed it. Anyone have any ideas?

From a page at Microsoft:

Click Start, and then click Run.
Type regedit, and then click OK.
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters

In the right pane, double-click the IRPStackSize value.

NOTE: If the IRPStackSize value does not already exist, use the following procedure to create it:
In the Parameters folder of the registry, right-click the right pane.
Point to New, and then click DWord Value.
Type IRPStackSize.

IMPORTANT: Type "IRPStackSize" exactly as it is displayed because the value name is case-sensitive.
Change the Base to decimal.
In the Value Data box, type a value that is larger than the value that is listed.

If you created the IRPStackSize value using the procedure described in step 4, the default value is 15. It is recommended that you increase the value by 3. Therefore, if the previous value was 11, type 14, and then click OK.
Close the Registry Editor.
Restart the computer.

Glad it worked and thanks for letting me know.

Certainly it wasn't a very intuitive solution. Ran across it only once before but luckily it is a pretty easy fix.
