I can't get Windows95 to access the printer and files on a Windows XP
Professional SP 2 machine. I am using Window95 4.00.950 B. IE 4.04.71.1712.6.
I can access the files on the Windows95 computer from the Windows XP
computer. Both computers are attached to a SMC 7004VBR router. I am using a
DSL connection. Both computers are seen on network neighborhood on the
Windows95 computer. But I can not access the WindowsXP computer. I get the
following message "---is not accessible. No permission to access resource". I
can ping the XP computer from the 95 computer.

Any help would be appreciated. Please identify your sources.

Is the username/password on the Windows 95 machine the same as on the
Windows XP machine and/or does the user on the Windows 95 machine have the
proper access for the shares/files/folders on the Windows XP machine?
