I have the XP Sp2 Pro OS computer connected on an internal network with a Win
2k Pro OS computer. From the network neighborhood, I could see both system
(there system names). I could use the Win XP Sp2 Pro to connect and get
access to files on the Win2k Pro OS system. Just as long as the files are
shared. From the Win2k Pro OS system, I could see the Win XP Sp2 Pro on the
network, and I tried double clicking on the system name and it give the
following error: "\\D8z7Y488 is not accessible. Logon failure! User account
restriction".

The Win Xp Sp2 pro system has the account Gary Computer Adminstrator with no
password. The Win 2k Pro system has users Administrator as Administrator,
Gary As Administrator, and Guest as Guest.

Someone suggestion that I must have accounts on both system using the same
user name and password in order to work. Someone also suggested that user
accounts will not be necessary if I enable guest connections on the XP Pro
computer. I did the following: start-> run secpol.msc, Local Polices->
User Rights Assignment, Double click on both "deny access to this computer
from the network" and "deny logon locally", and remove guest from both of
these places.

Both of these two processes didn't work for me!!!! I also had the Win
Firewall off during both cases.

Someone else also suggested the ForceGuest = 0 was be set, and that was
tried. It didn't work. I did try ForceGuest = 1, and the system prompt me
for a User Name and Password.

I would like to connect to the XP system without using a User Name and
Password if possible. If not, they I will need to do this.

Can someone give me full details what I must do to get this resolved!

Thanks,

Gary

I have this same problem. I also have a win2003 server on the network and it
can access the XP pro machine and 3 win2000 machines with no problem. To
make the problem even more crazy, I have 2nd computer on this network with
XP Pro and it's C drive is shared and it has no problem. So the problem is
limited to one XP Pro SP2 machine.

Note that all workstations can 'see; the problem machine but only the
win2003 std. server can access it.
Note that the problem XP pro machine can access the shares on the win2003
std. server??
