Hi folks. First let me say that I have tried to solve my issue by reading
through previous posts but as yet have had no luck, so i hope someone can
help me.

I am running a home network with a dektop and a laptop, connected directly
by Cat5 cable. The desktop connects to the internet via internal dial-up
modem.

The desktop is running XP Home and the laptop XP Pro. Both are updated to
the hilt. Desktop was previously running McAfee PF+ but it has been
uninstalled. After reading a previous thread I found and followed
instructions for a deeper manual uninstall.

I have run the home networking wizard about 300 times. ICS works fine.
Desktop can see shared folders on Laptop, but Laptop cannot see any shared
folders, or the printer, on Desktop. If I try to map a network drive nothing
comes up under Desktop, and if i right-click and choose Open I get the
following message:

"\\Desktop is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if
you have access permissions.

Logon failu the user has not been granted the requested logon type at
this computer."

Hope you can help. Let me know if there is any further info you need.

MJ,

If the computer that can't be accessed runs Windows XP Home:

1. Download and install the Windows 2003 Server Resource Kit Tools from
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=4544.

2. Click Start | All Programs | Windows Resource Kit Tools | Command Shell.

3. Type these lines at the command prompt. The second and third commands are
case-sensitive, so type them exactly as shown. Note the "+r" in the second one
and the "-r" in the third one:

net user guest /active:yes
ntrights +r SeNetworkLogonRight -u Guest
ntrights -r SeDenyNetworkLogonRight -u Guest

If the computer that can't be accessed runs Windows XP Professional:

1. Click Start - Run, type "secpol.msc" in the box, and click OK.
2. Click Local Policies.
3. Click User Rights Assignment.
4. Check "Access this computer from the network", and make sure that the
Everyone group is included.
5. Check "Deny access to this computer from the network", and make sure that the
Everyone group is NOT included.

Thanks Chuck, I think we are making progress. After following your
instructions (the non-accessible computer is running XP Home), the second
part of the error message in my original post now just says "Access is
denied." The first part is still the same.

OK, "access denied" on XP Home is simple.

Make sure that the Guest account is enabled. Enable Guest, with Start - Run -
"cmd", then type "net user guest /active:yes" in the command window. Ensure
that the password for Guest is blank, with Start - Run - "control
userpasswords2"; select Guest, click Reset Password, click OK without entering a
new password.

Once Guest is enabled, make sure there are no misbehaving or misconfigured
firewalls.

Using Simple File Sharing (and using Advanced File Sharing, with Guest
authentication) is pretty simple, and only a couple things to check.
- Guest account enabled, with identical (or null) password, on both computers.
- All firewalls properly configured, or removed.

Did you enable Guest, and reset the password, on both computers?

If no help yet, provide ipconfig information for each computer, and we'll start
diagnosing the problem.
Start - Run - "cmd" - Type "ipconfig /all c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
window. Open Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is NOT checked!, open
file c:\ipconfig.txt, copy and paste entire contents into your next post.
Identify operating system (by name, version, and SP level) with each ipconfig
listing.

BTW, I really appreciate your help Chuck.


Glad to help, just hope we can get a resolution.

The IPConfigs look normal. Let's enumerate the symptoms.

Take the following code (everything inside the "#####"). (Please verify
computer names and ip addresses).

Open Notepad. Ensure that Format - Word Wrap is not checked. Highlight then
Copy the code (Ctrl-C), precisely as it is presented, and Paste (Ctrl-V) into
Notepad. Verify, and correct, names and addresses if necessary.
Save the Notepad file as "cdiag.cmd", as type "All Files", into the root folder
"C:\".
Run it by Start - Run - "c:\cdiag".
Wait patiently.
When Notepad opens up displaying c:\cdiag.txt, first check Format and ensure
that Word Wrap is NOT checked! Then, copy the entire contents (Ctrl-A Ctrl-C)
and paste (Ctrl-V) into your next post.

Do this from all computers, please, with all computers powered up and online.

In addition, when running the code on the laptop, the following came up in
the command window:

"System error 5 has occured.
Access is denied.
System error 5 has occured.
Access is denied."

Thanks.


OK, your symptoms are pretty consistent, and one-directional. Laptop just can't
access resources (or enumerate them) on Desktop.

You've activated the Guest account (Desktop being XP Home) on both computers,
using the net command (not just using the Control Panel applet), right? And
we're pretty sure that you don't have a firewall interfering.

So now we're down to registry settings. There are 2 settings which might be
relevant - everyoneincludesanonymous and restrictanonymous. The Guest account
uses anonymous access.
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=278259
http://www.jsifaq.com/subf/tip2600/rh2625.htm
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=246261
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=296403

The above articles refer to Windows 2000. Remember WinXP is NT V5.1, and Win2K
is NT V5.0.

Have you used the Registry Editor before? If not, it's a scary tool, but it's
pretty simple once you get used to it. Here are a couple articles that might
help:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/default.asp?url=/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/tools_regeditors.asp
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/registry

Just remember to backup the key (create a registry patch) for
[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa] before making any changes, if
appropriate.

From the Annoyances article:
You can create a Registry patch by opening the Registry Editor, selecting a
branch, and choosing Export from the File menu. Then, specify a filename, and
press OK. You can then view the Registry patch file by opening it in Notepad
(right-click on it and select Edit). Again, just double-click on a Registry
patch file (or use Import in the Registry Editor's File menu) to apply it to the
registry.

End diagnosis for LAPTOP

In addition, when running the code on the laptop, the following came up in
the command window:

"System error 5 has occured.
Access is denied.
System error 5 has occured.
Access is denied."

Thanks.


OK, your symptoms are pretty consistent, and one-directional. Laptop just can't
access resources (or enumerate them) on Desktop.

You've activated the Guest account (Desktop being XP Home) on both computers,
using the net command (not just using the Control Panel applet), right? And
we're pretty sure that you don't have a firewall interfering.

So now we're down to registry settings. There are 2 settings which might be
relevant - everyoneincludesanonymous and restrictanonymous. The Guest account
uses anonymous access.

The above articles refer to Windows 2000. Remember WinXP is NT V5.1, and Win2K
is NT V5.0.

Have you used the Registry Editor before? If not, it's a scary tool, but it's
pretty simple once you get used to it. Here are a couple articles that might
help:
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/default.asp?url=/windowsxp/home/using/productdoc/en/tools_regeditors.asp
http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/registry

Just remember to backup the key (create a registry patch) for
[HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa] before making any changes, if
appropriate.

From the Annoyances article:
You can create a Registry patch by opening the Registry Editor, selecting a
branch, and choosing Export from the File menu. Then, specify a filename, and
press OK. You can then view the Registry patch file by opening it in Notepad
(right-click on it and select Edit). Again, just double-click on a Registry
patch file (or use Import in the Registry Editor's File menu) to apply it to the
registry.

Thanks Chuck, that worked!!

I have one other problem. One of the folders on Laptop (XP Pro) that I'm
sure I had access to before (from Desktop) is no longer accessible. This
problem occured prior to the resolution of the last one, but not sure exactly
when. I seem able to map it okay, but when I try to open it I get the "S:\
is not accessible. Access is denied." message. It seems to be properly
configured for sharing, and I have gone back through the previous actions of
this thread to try and work out what I did but no luck. The other shared
folder works no problems.

Ah, progress! Maybe.

What you mean is that worked, but caused another problem. What exactly did you
do? Did you change one of the registry settings, and if so, which one? Or did
you have to reset the Guest account?

What's different about this folder? Is it the only one with this problem? Look
in Properties - Security, and compare with a couple other folders with no
problem.
