I’ve got a Windows networking problem that threatens to make me hit something.
Here’s the topography: Vista desktop connected by Ethernet to router. XP notebook connected via 802.11g to router.
Both computers are in the same workgroup. There’s a USB printer connected to the Vista box.
The Vista box can see the XP box, read/write files and generally work correctly.
The XP box sees the Vista PC, but when trying to connect, I get a “Logon failure: the user does not have the necessary permissions.” Can’t print, either.
The Vista box won’t let me disable password-protected sharing at all, but file/print sharing is enabled.
