Networking Pro, Home, and XP
My main server at home runs Win 7 Pro (64). I configured its sharing so that another one of my PCs that runs XP Home (32) can access public shares on the server and access a shared printer on the server...and life is good. I can access those shares and the printer without a username and password.
The problem - another desktop that I have running Win 7 Home (64) cannot access those shares without entering the credentials for the server Win 7 Pro server.
I am confused. How can the XP server access the files without any username/password but another client running Win 7 Home is required to enter a username/password?
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
