    Hi All,
    I have a question. I just set up a small
    network between my XP desktop and my Vista
    laptop. All seems to be working fine file sharing
    internet access. For my question, I can only access
    the public files from the XP desktop. It won't let me
    access My Documents.This is the massage I get:

    \\Computer2\shareddocs is not accessible. You might not have
    permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of
    this server to find out it you have access permissions.
    No network provider accepted the given network path.

    Router:Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router. Model WRT300N
    Laptop: Toshiba Satellite, OS: Vista Home Premium
    Desktop: ABS OS XP Home SP2
    IPCONFIG /ALL was taken from the Vista laptop
    Thanks,
    Barry

    The My Documents, Programs Files, and Windows folders are locked down by default on computers with Simple File Sharing enabled. You need to disable Simple File Sharing on the remote PC and you may also need to have an account with the same username and password on both PCs, depending on what you are trying to access on the remote PC.

    I don't understand why "shareddocs" was part of the error message when you were attempting to access "My Documents."

    XP Home only has Simple File Sharing, so don't try to figure out how to disable it. :)

    Does the system let you share "My Documents" and did you share it? If so, then the reason you couldn't access it is what Frank4d said.

    TerryNet I can share My Documents from Windows Vista to XP but can't access My Documents
    in Vista from XP. I hope you can understand what I am trying to say.
    Thanks,

    On the Vista computer, try adding the same user name and password that is being used on the XP Computer.

    I have set both the XP and Vista computer with the same user name and password,
    and still no joy.
    I have rechecked all my setting, I don't see anything wrong BUT still can't access "shareddocs"
    still get the same error massage.
    Any other ideas.
    Thanks again for every ones help.

    Vista compatibility with earlier versions of Windows.

    Start, Run, regedit

    Navigate to the following folder:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa

    In the right, double-click "LmCompatibilityLevel"

    Change the value to 1 (probably currently 3)

    Restart your computer

    On the Vista computer, what are the settings for the Network and Sharing Center?
    Can you share some other directory and have it be accessed?

    Hi Bob,
    The only thing I can access are the public files from the XP desktop. On \\Computer2\shareddocs is still not accessible. I still get the same massage

    (\\Computer2\shareddocs is not accessible. You might not have
    permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of
    this server to find out it you have access permissions.
    No network provider accepted the given network path.)

    As for the Vista (Computer2) All the setting are set for sharing.
    I must be missing something someplace.
    Thank for all you time.
    Barry:confused:
