Sharing within a Workgroup


B

Bill

Having trouble with XP Home SP3 sharing
of HD within a Workgroup. After a long
delay following a click on a hard-drive in
a second computer within a Workgroup
using Windows Explorer, I get the message

\\Office\OfficeHD 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. Not enough
server storage is available to process this command.

Since it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't,
I'm at a loss to figure out what things to check
beyond the sharing attributes of the hard-drives
and proper settings of Workgroup in the system
properties.

What else can I look at? The two computers in
the Workgroup belong to the same a workgroup
and connected to a Linksys router.

The two systems are named "Office" and "Kitchen".
The "Office" machine can "see" the folders on the
"Kitchen" machine, but the "Kitchen" machine gets
the message noted above whenever it attempts to
access the HD on the "Office" machine.

The "Not enough server storage is available to
process this command." doesn't make sense on
systems with 2GB of DDRAM and plenty of HD
free space.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Bill

Give them the same workgroup name tick simple file sharing if both are
XP. If any firewalls, are installed configure it. Share a folder on both

Thanks John,

I had to add IRPStacksize to the registry and
increase its size from the XP default of 15 to
30 and re-boot. The host was in fact posting
event 2011 whenever the access was attempted.

Thanks again,
Bill
