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.

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

correct.

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:
