Windows 7: Permission Denied

Permission Denied

I have set up a Home network between my Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit machine and WinXP SP3 machine. Each machine is visible on the other and XP files can be accessed from the Win 7 machine. On the XP machine the Users\Public folder is accessible. I have another User which cannot be accessed. Message says Access denied. I have given permissions to share the folder, but I still cannot access from the XP machine. Please advise

First homegroup is primarily designed for win 7 only networks and uses IPv6. Sometimes homegroup has connectivity issues.

You can test this by setting up a new network connection using workgroup. If it works you can then disable IPv6 and kill homegroup

I finally figured out the problem. I had to set permissions for the folder to "everyone", and now I can access the user and folder on the the XP machine.
