Two WinXP Pro SP2 PC's (call them PC1 and PC2)
Ethernet networked via a 10Mbit hub.
Dialup Internet on PC1.
PC1 LAN address 192.168.0.1
PC2 LAN address is 'automatic'.
PC1 is original machine - "may" have been connected to a server system in the past.
PC2 is new.
Both are similar specs P4 2.8GHz, 256MB, 40GB etc.
PC1 logon is <name>(admin) -no password. Ctl-Alt-Del required to logon.
PC2 logon is <name> (admin) - no password.
Use the network wizard to setup ICS on PC2 - works great.
Both machines on workgroup = WORKGROUP.
Share printer and a folder on PC1, share a folder on PC2 - ok.
Access folder on PC2 from PC1 - no problems.
Try to access anything on PC1 from PC2 and get error message:
Window title "Workgroup":
\\<PC1name> is not accessible. You might not have permission to access this network resource. Contact your network administrator to find out if you have access permissions.
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.
I've enabled the guest account, uninstalled and reinstalled 'file and printer sharing', used the network wizard to set up PC1 again, turned off windows firewall on the LAN, disabled McAfee firewall on PC2, PC1 is running "Virus Shield" which doesn't appear to have a firewall. I followed a bunch of "solutions" from various tech sites on the internet, which did not work and now I've run out of ideas.
Can someone tell me what the problem is? Even better what the solution is?
