  Windows 7 and XP: no workgroup connection 
 Date Written

Hello all:

I have two computers at home: one with XP and another with 7, both with all drivers, all working fully.... well,except they cannot connect with each other.

That is, they see each other but when I try to access b from a, or the other way around, i get the typical message that I do not have permission to access... Both hds are shared as is the printer.

When the W7 computer had xp installed, I had no problem accessing each other's resources.

Any help here? I guess W7 has some other setting I do not know about. Do you?

Thanks in advance,

Asus M2N-SLI

Have you checked the permissions? I don't think Windows allows anonymous access by default.

It is said that when it comes to life, those who feel see it as a tragedy. Those who think see it as a comedy.
