I have 3 computers at home.
One stand alone with win XP pro
Second - laptop with win XP home
With both there is no problem to see each other and I can share folders and files.
Recently I bought laptop with windows 7 home premium. I followed the instruction how to make
home network with homegroup. I can access from the stand alone to win 7 laptop
but from win 7 to the stand alone I can't. When I click on the icon of the stand alone computer I get a message "windows cannot access \\ (name of the computer)
you do not have permission to access \\... Contact your network administrator to request access".
What I am missing? I gave all the permissions I could in the stand alone computer Thanks for help
