  1. Error MSG in File Sharing

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    unfortunally i dont know much about networking...

    although I do need to share the file between the 2 computers..

    ok now,
    hardware, 2x win XP PRo 1/Laptop 1/Desktop
    ASDLRouter/Modem/switch = Netcomm NB13000 Plus 4 (DHCP ready)

    website info

    Both computer have the same WORKGROUP name. i can see both computer on both machines, while looking "MYNETWORK PLACES"

    Can Ping both computers from each other with no errors

    Trouble is....

    i can only access the laptop form the Desktop. when i try to access the desktop fron the laptop i receive this error msg..

    \\Rebecca 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.



    The network path was not found.

    OK

    This is what i dont understand as we have administrators rights on both computers...

    Why can i access 1 & not the other???
