"Access Is Denied" when connecting to Network Share

Guest

I installed Win 2K onto an older computer to run as a localhost server
(website design). I set up the XAMPP root folder to be shared but when I try
to access it on my XP Pro computer I get the error that "Access is denied." I
enabled the Guest account and set the shares and security permissions
correctly. The fix was a registry modification but I can remember what it is.
Can anyone tell me what the fix is?

When a stranger knocks at your door, will you just let him? No!
What about if it is someone you know? Yes!

You currently use xxx as a logon account on your WinXP PC,
with a password of yyy. Now create the same account / password
on your Win2000 PC and all will be well (as long as xxx has
appropriate access rights to the XAMPP folder & share).

I'm not using it as a flat out server. I'm using it to make websites. The
computer is 7 years old it won't stand up as a server.

Nonetheless, that is the fix. You need an account on the w2K box with
the same username and password as you use to log in to your XP box, and
with permissions to whatever shares you want to access. It'll take you
less time than it did to post.

He could also turn on the Guest Account, it is off by default. That
will let anyone that can get into the network get into that box, but
is what I use on my network. No name or password syncing required.
