XP Pro not accessible from PC's with XP Home

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?aG93YXJk?=, Mar 3, 2007.

  1. I have 3 PC's in my house. PC's 1 and 2 have XP Home. PC 3 has XP
    Professional. PC's 1 and 2 cannot see the networked files of PC 3. However
    PC 3 can see the files of PC 1 and 2. PC 1 and PC 2 can also see each
    others files as well. When I view PC 3's Network Places all of PC 3's shared
    files appear along with all of PC 1 and 2's shared files.

    I'm left to conclude that there is some other security feature in XP Pro
    that is preventing the XP Home computers from "seeing" it. I've studied and
    disabled all firewalls and investigated for any quirky things in my LINKSYS
    wireless router. I've studied a lot of suggested literature from others in
    this community and have not found a solution. I've made sure that PC 3 shared
    folders have the correct boxes marked to allow network users access.

    Can you help me?

    in Network settings, http://www.ezlan.net/sharing.html
    As well as specific adjustment of each computer according to what it is
    allowed to be shared.
