XP and Vista network...

Well, to start I just got Windows Vista a few months ago. It works great, but the trouble came when I decided to connect all of my computers - XP Home, XP Professional and Vista - to a home network. I have a broadband connection that connects into my wireless router, and the Vista connects, wired, through that router. My ethernet printer also connects through that router. I have 2 wireless computers, an XP Home and XP Professional, that connect to the router's wireless connectivity. Whenever I go into the Vista Network center, I can always connect to the other XP computers, but when I go into the My Network Places in any of the XP ones, I can see the Vista, but cannot connect to it. I get an error message saying, "You do not have permission to access this network resource." I have no clue whats wrong. I tried downloading that update (I don't remember the name) that lets you see the entire network on Vista, and that worked, but only for the Network Map. Please help if you can!

Hello cjbrx3115!

You need sharing capabilities. I do not want to go too much into it myself at the risk of losing you in the message. Could not find you a great.understan dler tutorial either. But I did find you an emaple you can follow, I use this at work:

This deals with files and printers, but should help you get started to see your machine carrying vista: http://www.cnet.com.au/desktops/pcs/...0055565,00.htm

Pay close attention to Step 3: Create a workgroup

Please write again if this doe not help. I will look for more options. If all else fails, be prepared to read a journal from me:-)

In a bit!

Also, did you make sure the computer name is showing in your Doman Admin Mgt, provided you have a domain where this machines have to connect to:

(1) Go to My Computer
(2) Manage

Search there...

Well, I have a workgroup, called BELLAIR HOME. Everything is set up and working. I can share files, printers, everything. I just can't (from the XP computers anyway) open my Vista computer in the My Workgroup.

I'll try this at work again, will post what I can find. In the mean time, fetch answers here:

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/win...ista+Computers

I Google something for you and the link found was indeed a Microsoft one, but was broken. Decided to query "?=&qu=Network+ XP+computers+wi th+Vista+Comput ers" through above link and therefore. Give it a whirl.

I got the Vista & Xp machine on a wired network and I can access the Xp machine no problem. The trouble is Xp is looking for a Username & password to access the Vista machine. In the network and sharing center, If I select public folder sharing or Printer sharing, it says that a password is required. Where exactly does this password come from? I have no password on either machine. I de-selected public folder sharing and printer sharing...

I have two PCs running XP Pro, which are networked to a Vista Ultimate PC. The network works fine in both directions, but I am unable to print from the XP machines to my Canon Pixma MX700 printer, which is connected to the Vista PC via a local USB cable. Setting up the networking was problematic, but I finally got it working by setting up guest user accounts on all shared folders on the Vista PC. What do I need to do to network the printer?
