I have two Vista machines, a desktop and a laptop. both in the same
I have enabled Network Discovery, File Sharing, Printer Sharing and Password
Protected sharing on both machines. (I have also tried with the firewall
The problem is that I can only access shares on the notebook from the
Desktop -> Notebook -> shared folder works
Notebook -> Desktop -> continuously prompts for a password.
I am logged on to both machines as an administrator with the same user name.
Any ideas how to get this working both way please ?
Sounds like a misconfigured firewall then. Many antivirus/security programs
have a firewall component. You need to check what you are running to make
sure two firewalls aren't active. If you are using any third-party firewall
at all, you need to configure it to allow the LAN as trusted. Double-check
on the machine you can't access.
