    Question Trying to access VISTA PC w/ XP PC. Vista asking for name/pass.

    PC1: XP
    PC2: Vista
    Device: Belkin Router.


    I have 3 PCs (two XPs and one Vista) on a network. Each XP pc can connect to each other (via: Start>Run: \\i.p.addy.here). When either XP pc try and connect to the Vista PC, the Vista one asks for a username and pass.

    The Vista PC has folder sharing turned on.
    The Vista PC has only one user. I tried that user's u/p. Didn't work.
    I also tried:

    admin
    admin

    blank
    admin

    admin
    password

    User's: 'username'
    User's: 'password'

    blank
    blank

    I don't know what to do now.



    Thanks in advance!

    I forgot to mention that the Vista PC is wireless. I'm not sure that matters.

    Do you have the IPv6 topology patch for XP?

    Or, have you tried disabling IPv6 functionality in Vista?

    which version of Vista ??

    if it's the home one, you might as well give up now
    you need business, and then the premium would be best too

    we don't allow any Vista boxes onto our domain, as it has a tendency to promote itself to master browser, which is something else not required

    luck to you
    what a way to spend christmas

    one last ..........
    even though it's 'wireless' you may still have to hard wire it to the network to set it up
    least ways, that is what I do, I find it quicker to access and deploy

    I pray its Home Premium or Business.

    Ultimate on a Xp network can be a nightmare.
