this has probably been asked before on here but I'm in a pretty big rush so I needed to go ahead and post this... also please excuse me as I do not have alot of experience with networking, just some general knowledge.
I have two computers in question here. I have multiple computers on a network but only two are in question right now. I just replaced an older computer that was on the network with a new computer (xp pro). did SP3 and all possible updates from microsoft. I have another computer in the same room (xp media center edition) I need to be able to access files between these computers. I know the basic routine and got everything set up, or so I thought. Long story short, I can see the MCE computer from the Pro computer and access the files just fine. On the MCE computer, I can SEE the shared pro computer but when I try to access it, it keeps telling me that the path is wrong, or cannot be accessed or whatever the case. I have done everything I can possibly think of and can not get the MCE computer to view the pro computer. I can view all other computers on the network just fine, or atleast the few that I have tried. I don't *need* to access those other computers from that computer, but I made sure of it anyways. I can provide all the little details if necessary, I just skipped all that for the time being incase a quick answer popped up in anyone's head.
Please help, and thanks in advance
