Simple Lan Connection
A friend of mine is having trouble connecting 2 PCs via a router, its doing my nut to be frank.
When you try to connect to a share folder or drive on either of the computers it either comes up with a message saying the network path cannot be found or something about user type not having access.
both network cards are installed ok and have TCP/IP Protocol set to obtain IP and DNS automatically, File and printer shareing Enabled, client for microsoft networks and QoS packet scheduler.
both computers are running XP Pro and the logged in user accounts are administrators.
Effective permissions for everyone group are allow full control.
Ping is nill packets lost.
both PCs can connect to the internet ok via the router.
Neither computer is using simple file sharing.
Both have the some workgroup name "MSHOME"
all firewalls and security software is off.
the annoying thing is that both PCs can connect to a third PC on the network.
Edit: It doesn't matter that passwords are not set for the user accounts does it?
