Hi, just installed wireless network (linksys), now the pc can read and retrieve files from laptop but although laptop "sees" the pc i get a message stating that access is denied and to contact admin (me) have pinged both machines both ok, can access the web off either one ok. I have allowed file sharing on both and XP home on both machines (ntfs)
any help gratefully accepted:eek:

Try mapping a network drive via ip make sure you enter in the correct username and password.

1. Right click on my computer select map network drive
2. Under folder type in \\{Destination IP Address}\C$
3. Click on “different user name” enter in {Destination IP Address }\username and password
4. Click ok and finish


Cheers Zelkea,
Have sorted it now, had to download server tool kit and install
so all is well now.
thanks anyway.

Glad to hear you got it working and Thanks for post the solution!!
