Vista and XP....

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
How can I make it so my XP machines can access the Vista ones? The Vista machines are able to access XP fine, but XP can only see the Vista pc's, not access them (the icon shows up in the workgroup, but nothing can be accessed on or about them, not even the properties)

You have to go under network settings and turn on file sharing. Also, make sure your firewall isn't blocking it.

If you are are speaking about Remote Desktop, only Vista Business and Ultimate systems have that feature.

OK I got it to work. All I had to do was play around for a while with Vista and firewalls. Kindof annoying having to learn this in 2 different OS'es at the same time.

But it worked out in the end w00t!

I agree... They messed with a lot of things they shouldn't have messed with going from XP to vista. Apple did it too going from Tiger to Leopard...
