Windows Vista Network

cjbrx3115
Hello! I have a wireless network with 1 Windows XP Pro, 1 Windows XP Home, and 1 Windows Vista Home Premium. I can connect to any computer in the workgroup and see its shared files, except for the Windows Vista computer. The Vista computer does show up in the workgroup, but whenever I try and open the computer (via one of the XP computers) I always get an error message saying "You cannot connect to this computer. You do not have permission to access this location" or something like that. I have no clue whats wrong, so please help and thanks in advanced!


Oh and I would also like to know how to disable limit blank passwords in Windows Vista.

Have you tried to share the folder (I know in XP it's a right-click -> Properties option, not too sure about Vista), or create a Guest account for remote access?

I'm not sure what you mean by 'disable limit blank passwords'. Do you have a blank one you want to set? I would guess this is in the Control Panel ->Users, but I'm not sure I fully understand your question.

No, it's not a FOLDER. It's the COMPUTER (Windows Vista) that I am trying to access from the workgroup.

Yes, I was wondering if you had tried to share the individual folders that you wanted to share. Such as putting them all into a 'Shared' folder, and sharing that.
