Its strange how Win 7 networking is. I guess there is no right or wrong way to get it working. I'm hoping to come up with an easy overall solution. I hate that we can't use Network Neighborhood for browsing. Maybe some hack can fix this issue.

:wacko: How odd! Network Neighborhood is what I used. BUT I used MS Networking. Also (duh!) File and Printer Sharing, naturally (otherwise ->Win9x doesn't work) and Separate Users (naturally - MS Networking).

Some setting I missed?

No Vista/Win7 ATM, so can't fully retest. We'll keep "my" method "open" until I get a chance. UNLESS anyone else wants to do it. Otherwise, just use PROBLEMCHYLD's method.

Hate to tell you this, but the link given has absolutely no relationship to 2000/XP/2003, only Vista/Win7. There's absolutely no problem with those and have been using all three repeatedly and the method I give absolutely works. That's why I provided it for this topic as well.

edit - forgot to mention - you misunderstood the links "workgroup-name" - it DID mean "that-computers-name-in-workgroup" NOT the ACTUAL workgroup name. ;)

>> "Hate to tell you this, but the link given has absolutely no relationship to 2000/XP/2003, only Vista/Win7."

"This is for all the pals who got IPC$ Password Prompt while connecting a windows 95/98/ME machine to another windows 2000/XP/2003 machine in LAN, i.e. networking between NT & non-NT machine."

I'm no expert, I can only go on what's written ^

>> "you misunderstood the links "workgroup-name""

Ah yep, thanks. Anyone else not used to this stuff could make the same mistake I guess. If nothing else it might help them get it right too :)

Oh well, I got mine working, I'll leave the rest for the experts ;)

Pardon - you gave TWO links and the SECOND one is (pardon me but...) a STUPID idea. The GUEST account is NOT SECURE! Use MY method as given and you NEED NO insecure accesses! That's kind of like NOT putting a Password on the Administrator account.

OK... I meant "Pardon Me - My Mistake - you have TWO links. I inadvertently referred to the wrong one.

Guest Account -

Google
xp secure "guest account"
which includes a "discussion" of it here -
http://www.dslreport...t-in-XP-Pro-SP3
Please note that the Guest account is applicable "across the NT-OS board"...
ALSO note that NOWHERE does anyone suggest the tactics that you propose (via the link). It's not JUST an "opinion" but a general CONSENSUS.

You've already found that the correct info for the connection was already here (in spite of the links you provided, then finding you'd jumped the gun). Please also note the associate links I gave referring to PROBLEMCHYLD's posts (see post #47 and following...). The registry settings LOWER the security already, true? AGAIN, the method for 2K/XP/2K3 is SECURE (ref. ACL's)!

If you like, I'll restate it as EXTREMELY unwise. You're begging to be hacked... But, by all means, go ahead. ;)

???"deleted"??? Be that as it may... ...and not "p.sd off" - just presenting correct (AFAIK) information.
