1. two Computers - Laptop and Desktop
2. Both running XP
3. Set up homenetwork with Wizard
4. desktop can see and access Laptop sharde folders No Problem
5. Laptop can see desktop, but when I try to access desktop from laptop, I get: Desktop 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 permission.

Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer

I have tried everything I can think of and as far as I can tell, both computers are set up exactly the same. Firewall is not the problem, I turned it off and tried. File sharing is turned on on both.

Never mind, I fixed it. Local security policy in Admin Tools.

NDD, after some Google time I've found that if you're running XP Pro, you can fix this by going through "Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy > Local Policies > User Rights Assignment" and choose "Log on locally" (as opposed to "Deny Logon Locally") on each machine. Hope that helps.

Whoops looks like you got it.
