How to map a directory of a Windows XP machine onto a Windows 7 machine ?
So far I've been through several tutorials all suggesting the same:
Add a local user onto the XP machine with administrative rights and use this user to log on from the Windows 7 machine. It doesn't work. Further both machines are in the same workgroup and do have a password associated with their user accounts which are one-word account names.
On the Windows 7 machine I try to map the network drive in a standard way: In "Computer" I click "map network drive". Then I enter "\192.168.0.16\C$" (which worked fine on three other machine in my home network all running Windows 7) which gives me the login promt. Then on any user account present in my XP machine I am getting the error: "Login failure: unknown user name or bad password".
Under "Network" I can see the machine I want to map to but when I click it in order to browse it I am getting a login promt which exposes the same behavior as described above.
Can anyone help me ?
