Operating System Version:WIn2K and XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:Peer TO Peer Connectivity
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages:User not authorized for access
I am trying to allow allow access to a WIndows XP Pro machine from a WIndows 2K machine. I have set up both machines on the same workgroup name and allowed Printer and file sharing. The XP machine gives me an eror message saying the WIn2K does not have rights to access the XP machine.

Is there something I am missing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bob,

Make sure you don't have any firewalls enabled. Windows XP Home & Pro have a built-in firewall. And disable your third party firewall software like Zone Alarm.
Also, Make sure the files you are trying to share that the attributes are not set as read only, give full access.
Let me know if your still having trouble.

The thing is, he doesn't have to turn off his firewall.

What he needs to do is to create an exception to the firewall rules, allowing all machines, on the local network, full access to shared files and folders.

It would be quite interesting to know which firewall he's using though.
One other thing; when he goes into the Network and Dialup Connections, he should right click his Local Area Connection and click Properties
Once there, he should click his Install button and next select Protocol and then NetBEUI Protocol

That should put his XP rig into compliant mode. Should that fail, also install NWLink IPX/SPX/NetBIOS Compatible Transport Protocol

But first and foremost, he should create that exception in his firewall.
