    i have a desktop running xp pro sp3 and a laptop running vista, i have two
    user accounts on both machines. i can see and access one folder on xp machine
    under acct. 1 from vista but can't access a shared folder on xp under acct
    2 . vista gives the error the folder is accessible but you dont have
    permission. i compared the two folders setting and they are the same. neither
    asks for user name or password. i also run norton 360. all sharing is enabled
    there. why one but not the other. i am assuming something with the user
    accounts.
    thanks

  2. I would check the permissions in the Security Tab. Or create same the user
