Hi
The problem: on a home network with 3 machines running xp pro. All 3 machines have shared files. Machine A can see and browse machines B and Cs shared files but Machines B and C cannot see or browse machine As shared files. Upon trying to connect to machine A (from B or C) a box comes up asking for a username and password. Machine A and B both have SP1 installed. None of them have firewalls.
How can I get file sharing working??
Any help greatly appreciated.

did you uncheck "use simple file sharing"? What happens when you enter the correct username and password? Can you see the files then?

Make sure simple file sharing is enabled unless you are a power user... does your guest account have a password?

if you have a folder shared on machine A, do this at a DOS prompt on machine B (uncheck use simple file sharing):

net use * \\IP.ADDRESS.MACHINE.A\share_name /u:USERNAME PASSWORD

use a valid username and password on the target machine, instead of guest. Then what happens?

I was talking to this systems engineer at work a few days ago and he said I had to set the permissions (How?). I've never had to do that before. Have always been able to just share folders on the network and people can browse them. Can't see why 1 machine can see the others shared files but not the reverse. Does SP1 change it all?

"Resolution: The users do not have permission to connect to the remote computer. To resolve this problem: on the remote computer, select Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the network>Properties>Add Users or Groups, add everyone or any users you want to be able to access the computer from the network."

got to the part where you add users. went to add the other computer from location workgroup (our workgroup is "workgroup") clicked advanced, clicked find, found the computer, clicked ok, clicked apply and get "failed to save local policy database"
