2000 & XP & Vista


I

Information

Due to budget limitations, I am working with the following:

We have a Win2000 workstation (SP4) that houses a database program to be
accessed through a shared folder to the remainder of our stations.

Station 1 is an XP Home box (SP3), Station 2 is a Vista laptop (SP1). XP
and Vista can see each other, but only the XP box has a printer shared.
Vista can see that, and a temporary shared test folder, We removed the
folder share after seeing it worked.

Neither can access the shared folder on the 2000 box. Both XP and Vista
firewalls are disabled, there is no Norton or McAfee installed, only AVG. I
have added the user/passwords to the user list on the 2000 machine, and have
added permissions for the XP and Vista users.

The 2000 machine needs to be visible, then sharing the program can happen
and this project is finished. I have another 2000 box at another location
working just fine with XP, and cannot determine what is different here.

Any insight is appreciated, thanks in advance.

Please give us more information to understand the problem.

Is there a firewall on the 2000 box? If so, is it configured to allow
file sharing?

How are you trying to access the shared folder on the 2000 box from XP
and Vista? What exactly happens when you do it? If there's an error
message, what does it say?

No firewall on the 2000 box...only AVG. All machines are behind a dLink
router.

Trying to access through My Network Places on XP...no permission to use the
resource, contact Administrator.
Various methods via Vista, but essentially the same message.

I can get in front of these systems on Monday morning and exactly record
method/result if the above is insufficient.

Information

Both the XP & Vista machine state the network path is not found.

Vista reports Error #0x80070035, XP has no error number.

I know this has something to do with 2000, but I am unable to track a
setting down in 2000. There is no firewall on any of the three, nor any
Security software other than AVG Free 8.0

Thanks again,

Dan

We can ping, and have installed IPX/SPX on the XP box and can now see the
2000.

Problem is the IPX/SPX on the vista.

Thoughts on that or the way of opening the 2000 box? Message on the Vista
is still Network not found with the error number below.

Systems are all part of the same workgroup and have different computer
names.

Um... why are you using IPX / SPX ?

If you use TCP / IP then there should be no problems.

AFAIK Vista doesn't support IPX / SPX natively.
