    Hi,

    I seem to be successfully mapping a C: drive to Z: (via wireless router). Only problem seems to be that the target computer has 2 accounts on it. Windows xp .

    When I connect to target, sign on box comes up - user drop down is greyed out (but says 'guest'). Clearly putting in password for 'Neil' is futile, and yet it seems to want one for 'guest'. Clearly there isn't one. Why do you think user drop down is greyed out and how can I correct this problem please

    What service pack level on the target XP? Home or Pro? If Pro are you using simple file sharing?

    Exactly what happens when you try in a Run box on a remote machine

    \\IPtarget

    where IPtarget is the IP address of the target machine?

    Finally, please show for the target machine ...

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following commands:

    nbtstat -n

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
