Network only working one way

By Ivan James

  1. I can't figure out how to access files or print from any other secondary computer. For some reason it tells me access is denied. I have checked all the sharing permissions and they all apear to be correct. The firewall appears to be configured to allow network sharing. Any thoughts or helpful suggestions? It used to work but now I can only get into the shared files on the secondary computers from the main computer.

    You are not giving us some important information like network hardware type and make. Also, what operating system are these computers running?

    I'm using a D-Link router provided with FIOS service. The main computer and two secondary computers are running XP and one secondary computer is running Vista.

    Checking this again it is letting me share from secondary computer to secondary computer. It is just not letting me access the files or the printer on the main computer.
