    I have set up a small home network of two pcs and a laptop. When I ask one
    of the pcs to 'view network computers' it shows the other machines Ok. BUT,
    when I tray to access the other computer I get the message "so and so is not
    accesible, you might not have permission to use this network resource".

    This is only one way though - I can access the pcs from my laptop OK.

    I have searched all over for info on this 'access permissions' problem but
    can't find a word about it anywhere. I am sure that it is something very
    simple but it beats me - can anyone help??

    Thankyou very much for the links, I am aware of file and printer sharing and
    have set those up but I did suspect that it could well have been a firewall
    setting which was causing the problem.

    I will read the info you provided very carefully and try again, I hope you
    don't mind me geting back if this fails!!!

    Thanks again.

    hello again

    I think I am almost there --- I need to 'tell' my firewall to allow the
    computers on my network.... I think that's right - is it?

    Can you tell me how i find the IP address of each of my machines so that i
    can add them to my firewalls's exceptions box?

    thanks again
