I just got a new computer with Win7. I have other computers with XP.
Most of the computers have file and print sharing turned on and guest account active. On these computers, I can access shared folders either from the command line (e.g,. dir //name/folder) or from explorer.
One of the XP machines had the guest account turned off. I first tried logging in with my Win7 credentials, which failed. I then turned on the guest account, made sure I was sharing some folders and they didn't have permissions issues, and tried again from the Win7 machine. It keeps asking me for username/password.
All machines are on my local network. Net view lists them all. The problem machine shows the correct time.
I then tried running gpresult on the problem machine and another machine. The problem had no entries under "the computer is part of the following security groups." Another machine listed a few accounts.
What should I do to logon to this XP computer?
