After a lot of trial and error and investigation on an earlier occasion, I found mentioned in a book that both computers need to have the Guest account turned on and have done this.
What I cannot understand is that without any change of settings if I switch the ethernet connection to another Laptop (Dell Inspiron 6400 running XP home) directories and files are accessible on both computers.
If I just link up the two Laptops, again files and directories are accessible.
But when connection is switched to the Desktop and Inspiron 6000 and they are restarted, without any change of settings, I get warnings saying no permission or path not found.
Any help or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
