Hi,

Please assist me in configuring File & Printer sharing network between my Desktop (XP Pro) & Laptop (Vista Home Premium 32bit); connected to internet through WiFi ADSL2+Modem.

Done the intial setup. Named my desktop as 'OfficeDesktop' & my latop as 'SonyVaio'. Now I am able to view my laptop in my desktop network & vice-e-versa.

The issues am facing is:
1) In OfficeDesktop (XP Pro);
I am able to access only the PUBLIC folder but others are coming 'Access Denied'.

2) In SonyVaio (Vista Home Premium);
I can view OfficeDesktop, but is not accessible.
Message: "Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."

Pls assist.
