+ 0 Votes simple file sharing yovev 4 years ago I suppose you are not using AD.On the XP machine go to control panel - folder options - the VIEW tab. In the bottom check "Use simple file sharing (Recommended)". Apply and to be sure it will take effect restart the PC.Have in mind that if My documents is set private for any user on the XP machine and you try to share something inside it you will not have any success. + 0 Votes I wish MNE 4 years ago I wish it was that simple, sorry i forgot to mention that i had already tried that, both with Simple File Sharing enabled and disabled.*EDIT*I went back and tried Simple File Sharing just in case i missed something, the error i get is Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. + 0 Votes ok then yovev 4 years ago "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"You get this error when trying to access the machine with the shared folders?On the xp machine you have to remove the password for the user who has made the shares or enable the guest account. If the machine has SP3 installed it automaticaly disables it. (Enable it from Computer Management - Local Users and Groups).And make sure the folders are not shared from the Administrator's account (this is to isolate other possible causes). + 0 Votes Possibly MNE 4 years ago The shares were shared from and admin account, that could have had an effect on it. The company needed it up and running so I had to work around the issue. Luckily for me there was only 4 TS users, so i set up those account on the xp machine as well, assigned a password and then connected each of them in turn, entering the password and checking the remember password option. Obviously not an ideal solution for a large established company but in my case it will do. Cheers for the ideas.
