I have two computers running XP. Both have identical settings for file sharing. From Machine A I can see machine B but when I click on the icon for machine b I get an error message that says I don't have the "requested login type" at machine B.

But when I go to machine B and try to access machine A I get a prompt request a username and password. This is what I expect machine B to do.

How do configure the requested login type on machine b so I can access its shares from machine A? I don't remember setting up anything special on machine A.

Hi,

Is this Pro? If so, you may need to enable everyone permissions for
anonymous users (start/run secpol.msc).

To the drunkard, it's time to order another round.
