Network problem

By sayal4 ·
I have connected two XP computers using a cross cable.PC1 can acess PC2 but when pc2 try to acess pc1 the login screen appears with user id computer_name\guest and the ID field is disabled and password field. Nothing happens if i enter anything in password.
I have enabled the guest acount on pc1 then message comes with saying something about permission.
Please help in this regard.

might want to consider creating a new workgroup and joining both computer to that workgroup, then share a folder or folders.

you won't have to use the \\<computer>\C$ or enable the guest account. also if both machines have SP2 installed you need to add the local subnet into the trusted zone of the firewall.
