    My problem:

    I have two computers (both running XP Pro SP2), and I want to share a HDD (and some folders) on one of them, but so no one else on my network can view them. I disabled the XP firewall, took simple file sharing off, and set the permissions so that only I can access the drive.

    When I go to open the drive from my main computer, I get the following screens:

    I've entered the correct username and password for the computer

    Once I enter the user info, I get this:

    Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? Even if I set the permissions so everyone can connect to it, it still gives the same error. If I use Simple File Sharing, it works fine.

    I can also connect fine from that computer to my main computer.

    Any idea what could be wrong?
