    I've finally managed to set up my xp - vista network but its still not quite right.

    I can access the shared folders on the XP machine fine from the vista machine, but when i try to access the vista shared folders from the XP machine, i get asked for a user name and password, when i type in the username and password it just pops up again as if i typed it wrong. I've currently not got a password set on the vista machine but i tried it with and it still didnt work

    Its set to private network, and file sharing and public folder sharing is on (password required). both the firewalls are set to allow file sharing.

    anyone had this problem before and know how to fix it??
