    Hi all,

    I connected my two computers at home,both have win XP.i set their IPs manually.on my first computer
    I set these options:

    IP address:
    Server IP:

    And on my second computer:

    IP address:
    Server IP:

    Now i can ping both without any problem.and i can see all shared folder on my second computer by my first computer. but i can not do it vice versa.

    This is the error:
    "\\ 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 failure: user account restriction. posssible reasons are blank passwords not allowed, logon hour restrictions, or policy restriction has been enforced."

    Can anybody help me with this?
