Alright, I'm really, really getting tired of this crap. I have a desktop and a laptop, both XP machines, both connected together with a crossover cable. Both are connecting fine - they see each other on My Network Places. Great. As soon as I tried to enable file sharing between them, I now get a message saying that "I may not have permission to use this network resource" every time I try to access one or the other.This is driving me absolutely insane. Can anybody help me before I trash both of these things?

I had the same problem using firewire. I read loads of forums, all basically saying the same thing but nothing worked. Finally, this did it for me, maybe it will for you too...

Make sure if you have a firewall that its open to file sharing. Some people have to have the guest account on, try turning them both on.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

If you are using quick logon with no passwords on either computer will cause this message. Change the logon type and give each computer the same logon name and password. If you don't then everytime your map the drive it will ask for one to match what is on the other computer.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
