Unknown user when connecting through XP

By pbkuk ·
I have set up a small workgroup, one XP prof and the other being Win NT server (Also changed to 2000 server).
I have assigned IP addresses and both stations can ping each other and can ping the name of the pc as well. Both ip's are correctly id'ed when using NSLOOKUP. The XP client is able to browse to the NT/2000 station but the NT/2000 station cannot browse to the XP station.

When you try to browse to the XP station you are aske for a user ID and password but evan using the administrator account you are told that username and password are incorrect. Any suggestions?

Make sure that the Administrator account on the XP box has the same password as the NT box. Also, make sure that the XP box is shared out correctly. XP Pro does not want you to share anything out be default, so check and double check you shared files and folders and try not to use the Wizards that MS wants you to use. You won't get anywhere.
