I was trying to use file sharing, I could port scan from either
computer, and see the other's port 139 (file sharing port) open.
I set up identical accounts on each system
firewall is not an issue 'cos i turned it off, and anyhow, i can see
port 139 from either comp on either comp.
both are win xp sp2, both have the built in guest account enabled,
both have simple file sharing, both share an account with the same
Solution for me was b, but here are 3 thinds to check
Things to check under
Administrative tools...local security policy...user rights and
a)"Access this computer from the network" includes Everyone and
Administrators and many others.
b)"Deny access to this computer from the network" make sure that Guest
is not listed there. If you still have problems, then maybe make sure
that nothing is listed there. I had Guest listed there, and it was the
cause of my problems. I have no idea how it got there.
note- the "Deny access" policy is the second policy beginning with D. a
It after "Debug Programs"
c) maybe try this, 'cos i've seen it recommended.
Administrative tools...local security policy..security options
"Network access sharing and security model for local accounts" there
are 2 options either classic or 'guest only'. try the other option. I
found it only works on Guest. But i recall seeing somebody saying it
only worked with 'classic'. I think you shoudl keep it as Guest! Make
sure that the Guest is enabled and not Denied access (See point b)
Solution 'b' worked for me. IT makes sense, 'cos I could see one comp
from the other comp but not vice versa. The one i couldn't see was
denying access to Guest. THe Guest accont is improtant for networking,
it shouldn't have been denied network access.
Regarding other longer solutions - for if those fail
somebody also mentioned a form of reinstalling windows that solved it
in post subject "Networking between 2computers" they recommended
against a repair. Though another author mentinoed doing a repair.

the solution to this problem is described in detail on the web

My solution, was to remove Guest from the Dent access policy.
The solution given was - and I quote
"Resolution: The users do not have permission to connect to the remote
computer. To resolve this problem: on the remote computer, select
Administrative Tools>Local Security Settings>Local Policies>User Rights
Assignment, right-click on Access this computer from the
network>Properties>Add Users or Groups, add everyone or any users you
to be able to access the computer from the network. "
I actually used your 'network problem solver' but it didn't list what
worked for me. No doubt, my solution and the solution offered are part
of the same solution. THe solution offered there was the 'a' in my
solution. The 'b' (Guest being denied access) must be checked too.
Even the C which worked for some people.

that's exactly what the Network Problem Solver page prescribes
in the chapter "Logon failure—logon type". I thought, of course,
that you had taken it from there.
No big deal. Apparently just some misunderstanding.
