peer to peer networking XP and 2000 mach

By Shanghai Sam ·
I have a small peer to peer network which consists of a windows 2000 pc which has files that we have been accessing from windows 98 and windows 2000 machines. I have installed 3 machines with windows XP Professional and have installed netBEUI, TCP/IP,file and printer sharing and Client for Microsoft Networks. From 2 of the XP machines I cannot access the files on the 2000 machine even though I can see them and I have the same user id and password on those machines as I do on all the other machines that work. Also from Network Neighborhood On the 2000 machine that has the files I'm trying to access I am unable to see the XP machines in question. Any suggestion as to what I need to do I think I've done most of the obvious things. What baffles me is that one of the 3 XP machines is able to access the windows 2000 machine and as far as I can tell it is configured exactly like the other 2.
