Network using crossover UTP

By valhalla ·
I'm having trouble in sharing files on a network using crossover utp. One system is using windows XP and the other windows me. From the pc with XP I can see and access all the drives on the other pc but from the windows me I can not. I get a message that I do not have authorisation. The sharing of the drives on both pc's is set to full with no passwords.

The first response is correct. You need to have the ME logon name as a user on XP. To do so go to control panel and open user accounts. Add the ME user by using that login name and password. For the shared folders you can right click go to sharing and in the rights tab you can select users that can have access. Not good to allow everyone to share the files, include users by name or group. Also you may need to check the firewall settings in XP.
