i've got three computers networked...

comp1 - winxphome sp2
comp2 - winxphome sp2
comp3 - vistahome

now i am sharing files between them.. the problem is, vista gets full access with the shared folders on the two xp machines...

both the xp machines can see all the shared folders on vista, but can only access public folder (default shared by vista)...

the ones i enabled sharing manually (with full control access) i can't click into from the xp machines

has anyone come across this issue?

Temporarily disable the firewall on Vista to see if that's the problem.

i have disabled firewalls on all machines....

now i'm currently running avast on one xp and one vista... i'm not sure if it has inbuilt firewall...

the thing i don't get is, that i can access only the public folder on vista but not the ones i manually configured to share....

i know its a permision issue but i have enabled total control on these folders... vista is just weird and suck

Make one of the other folders a subdirectory of the public folder just to see what happens.

Try to access the Vista shares by clicking start, run, type \\IP_address of the Vista box and press enter, on one of the XP boxes.

If you have password protect on, then turn it off, although I doubt that it could be causing this, but you could give it a try.
