Hello

Is it possible to acces from Windows XP Professional computers (they are in
our comapny domain) data on Windows XP Home.
As I see, this can only be done via Guest account (on win XP home). Is there
any other way (throuh domain users, or local users created on WinXP home
workstations?)

Thanks in advance
Best regards
Miha

Miha,

No. XP Home uses ForceGuest model. All the incoming connections are treated as Guest acounts. Whereas XP Pro allows advanced file-sharing (can also use Simple File Sharing, ForceGuest).
