    Cant Access WIndows XP Machine form 7. Asks for a password [LAN]


    hello,

    I am using Windows 7 64bit. I have another XP machine in my LAN. Windows 7 can see the Xp machine in the network tab. But when I try to access it, it prompts for a user name and password.

    I've tried setting up a password in my XP machine. Still when i try to connect to the xp machine from 7, i get window prompting for password.

    I've been seen different threads but still no luck.

    Thanks in advanced :)

    Can you enter a valid win7 username and password there? What response do you get then?

    Thanks very much for the reply

    I have no password for my user account in windows 7. So I put my usename "saffat" and kept the password blank. Then this happens

    You entered Saffat as username (I think). That defaults to PLABON-PC\Saffat.

    It's PABLON-Laptop where you should logon!!
    so fill in:
    user: PABLON-Laptop\aUserThatExistsOnPABLON-Laptop
    The password of that user.
