Windows 7: Cannot access 7 box from xp but can 7 TO xp

01 Jan 2011   #1

7 home premium 64bit
Cannot access 7 box from xp but can 7 TO xp

1. Windows 7 build 7600
2. active network set to "work network"
3. both machines are set to operate from workgroup "Mshome44"
4. firewalls off on both machines
5. If I turn on "password protected sharing" Windows 7 won't let me connect from xp box, if I turn it off I can connect but when I click on any shared folders on win 7 box I get the below error message.
6. both machines have unique names
7. xp machine is xp pro sp3 fully updated
8. 7 box can assess xp box but not the other way around.
9. I set access to my test folder on 7 box "everyone" full rw privileges.
9. going wirelesly through dlink router but doubt a hard wire connection would solve the problem.

sharing options are as follows:
1. turn on network discovery
2. turn on file and printer sharing
3. Turn on sharing so anyone with network access can read and write files in public folders
4. enable file sharing for devices that use 40- or 56-bit encryption
5. turn off password protected sharing
6. use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers

error message:
"//rgc-amd4-pc/testnet is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the adminstrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

access is denied."
