Hi,

Can anyone shed some light on this for me please...

I have set F+P sharing on comp A and im trying to view the shared drive
on comp B. I'm using windows xp pro with SP2 on both pc's.

However each time I try to connect to the shared drive I get prompted
for a username and password. The username box is already filled in with
the details of the guest account (which is disabled on both pc's) so i
am unable to change this. There is also no password set on the guest
account on either pc anyway.

Can someone tell me how to remedy this before i throw both pc's out of
the window :)

Many thanks,
Chris
