In our small company, I've set up a network. Works well on the whole.
Recently I bought a new XP desktop to replace a laptop.
It is connecting to the network okay, can browse the internet through the gateway, and view other pcs shared folders (6 x XPs, 2x Vista).
My problem is no-one can access the shared folder on this new machine. Error is:
\\Riggers is not accessible
I can ping Riggers thru the LAN fine.
I used control userpasswords2 to reset the password for the guest account, and unchecked 'users need a password to access this pc'. Now other pcs are presented with a dialogue:
CONNECT TO Riggers
It is asking for a password, but there is none, clicking return just causes the dialogue to reappear.
Following help in winhlp.comm I checked the registry key RestrictAnonymous. Its is set to zero.
Disabling AVG firewall has no effect.
Please help... I am stumped!
