    Computer on network not accessible message

    I have 3 computers on a wired network with a linksys router. Two are XP and
    the other is Vista Home Premium. All computers can see each other. The XP
    machines can access each others shared files. The Vista machine can access
    the shared files on the XP machines. However, clicking the Vista machine icon
    on either of the XP machines results in this message: "\\Home is not
    accessible. You might not have permission to use this network rescource.
    Contact the administrator of this service to find out if y ou have access
    permission. The network path was not found"
    (Home is the name of the Vista computer) Any help with this issue is
    appreciated.
    thanks

    Hi

    A common complaint

    try this

    http://www.networkmagic.com/download/

    it has a free 30 day trial period
    and has solved many issues on this list

    you will need to download and install in all computers
    and run the variuos sections from there.

    you may need to keep an eye on firewalls also
    several third party ones are proving a problem
    network magic should tell you

    cheers for now

    Keith D.

    I have a similar problem. Do you have a password on your account(s) in the
    Vista PC. Seems that to connect to Vista, you need to have a password for the
    account on the PC you're connecting to. Probably something in the group
    policies.

    Ignore any third part stuff. Save yourself some money on something that can
    be solved.

    Thanks for the replies. Solved my own problem I think. Seems Vista computer
    has McAfee AV installed. After a little searching I found it has a network
    firewall. Disabled the firewall and now XP machines can access files on the
    Vista machine.

    Most connection issues generally are firewall related. If you disable the
    McAfee firewall, I hope you have something protecting the network!
