OK, here’s a challenge for my geeky friends. Re my home network.
I have a home wifi network on which I run my desktop machine and laptop. Everything used to be fine. Until I had a house-sitter and I changed my account on my desktop to be password-protected.
Ever since, my desktop machine can access my documents on my laptop (which is pwd-protected) but not vice-versa. Which is a pain: if I want to move something from one machine to the other, I can do it when I’m on the desktop but not the laptop.
-removed the pwd on my desktop account
-started desktop in safe mode, gone in as administrator, and changed properties-security on my account to allow all access to everything
-re-created my home network several times (occasioned by other failures, such as not being able to access the printer — everything is now working fine EXCEPT this)
From my laptop, I can access Guest account on my desktop machine, and “Documents and Settings,” but when I try to access my account, my documents, under “Documents and Settings,” I get “not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource.”
This seems like it must be something simple, but I’m stumped. ???
