LAN Cant see shared files on win7 from xp

I have 3 computers on a LAN.
Two run XP (pro) one runs Windows 7 all current.

They are all in the workgroup MSHOME.
Homegroup on Windows 7 is unassigned.
From Win 7 I can access the XP boxes.
From XP I cannot connect to the Windows 7 box with the message ...
"logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"

Hi and Welcome to Seven Forums,

It is more likely a permission issue, from your Windows 7 computer please follow this Tutorial and let us know if it helps or not then we'll try something else.

win7 lan connection problem

I followed the tutorial you linked to but no joy.

I have two desktops running Windows 7 and a laptop running xp.
All are in the workgroup MSHOME, there is no HOMEGROUP.
XP cannot see either Windows 7.
Neither Windows 7 can see the other Windows 7.
both Windows 7 can see and copy to/from xp.

The message I get relates to the machine I am trying to connect to not to a folder on that machine.
eg "\\ABNER is not accessible ... ".

Try using the IP Address of the computer that you're trying to access instead of the Computer Name. So, from Windows XP, click on Start then type: \\IPAddress\SharedFolder or SharedDrive

Also, what AV or Security Software are you using?
