Unable to "access" PC on Home Network : No Access Permission

    I have set up a home wireless network with a desktop (running XP Pro) and 3
    laptops (2 x XP Home & 1 x Vista Home Premium). All machines can "see" each
    other and able to access every other PC on the network, except: None of the
    laptops can explore the desktop. All come up with the same message that the
    desktop is not accessible. Access is denied and I do not have access
    permissions.

    I am running all machines with my user account and full administration rights.

    I have been through the Microsoft Help and Support but have not found a
    solution. My guess is that it is some setting in Network Connections on the
    Desktop that is causing the problem but despite trying various things, I have
    not got an answer.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated.

  2. Hi
    Successful Sharing involves some general consideration in Network settings,

    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
