Networking XP Home to XP Pro

Posts: n/a
      23rd Oct 2005
I have two XP Pro machines networked and bought a new XP Home machine. I
just want to access a database that is on the Pro machine using the XP Home
machine. They are both on the same workgroup and I can see the workgroup
from the Home machine but when I try to join it says I don't have
permission. I don't believe the Pro machine is set up on a domain as I
understand this would prohibit the Home from joining. When I try to
manually map a drive using the same address that is working on the second
Pro machine it says it doesn't exist.
Any help would be appreciated,

You are correct. An XP Home machine can't be joined to a domain. Can
you access the home box using the UNC (\\computername\sharename) and
vice versa? Try to access the XP Pro machine from XP home using the
UNC. Does the OS ask for alternate credentials when you try this?
