I just bought a laptop and I'm trying to network 2 computers so I can transfer files. I ran the XP wizard and my desktop pc can view files on my laptop. However, my laptop can not access my desktop. I get the following message: "//computer name is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server 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 been searching for a few days now and still cant figure out whats wrong. I disabled the firewalls, both computers have separate names and belong to the same network/workgroup, i also installed the nwlink netbios on both computers. Among a bunch of other registry edits. Also, if it helps, my desktop had windows xp home and my laptop runs windows xp media center. Thanks for any input. THIS IS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!
