Just something that I' havent been able to solve for a week now. Ok, 2 computers running WinXP just installed. I connected them with a cross-connect cable. They are pinging ok to each other, so there's physical connectivity between them. Now, when I try to get into one of the other PC's by typing \\.... the other PC asks me for a password. None of the PC's have passwords anywhere, and they're both administrators. So, why the heck is it asking for a password ? I'll really appreciate any help you can give me cuz there's no way they can get into one another. In case this will help I'll list the IP specs. 1- 192.168.0.2, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.0.1 (WinXP Sp1) 2- 192.168.0.5, subnet 255.255.255.0, gateway 192.168.0.1 (WinXP Sp1) P.S. There's something weird, I tried the same thing with another PC that has Win2000 and it worked one way. I mean, the XP Computer could get into the 2000, but the 2000 couldnt get into the XP computer, keeps asking for that stupid password :crash: . Thanks for any help you give me.
