I have read every variation in several forums to no avail. I have 2 machines on running XP Pro SP3 and on running Win 7 7057. When I had Win Beta 7000 I figured out the Networking in a few minutes. I have been working on this for 2 days, with little success. I have figured out how to Map a drive from Win 7 to XP and How to setup a Network place from Win 7 to XP. Win 7 still won't show the XP Computer in Explorer or Networking. I can see the Win 7 Computer in My Network Places from the XP machine I can even see the shared folders on the XP Machine but I get a \\computername\folder is not accessable/ You might not have permission to use this network resource..... The request is not supported. I have truned off AntiVirus and Firewalls. I have a common WORKGROUP, I setup Gust account on the Win 7 computer. Any ideas??
