    Unhappy small home network


    I have 2 PC's and a Laptop on a LAN which is on a Broadband router(ADSL). The whole thing is a mess. PC1 + Laptop are running Win XP, PC2 has Win2000 and all connect to the Internet without any problems. PC1 + Laptop can access all shared folders on PC2, but that's it. PC2 can't access PC1 or Laptop, Laptop can't access PC1 and PC1 can't access Laptop. All attempts to connect are answered by the following:"....is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact admin...etc. Not enough server storage is available to process this command."
    Can anyone help?

    Is the guest account enabled on PC1 & laptop? Try that for starters.

    The problem was an obscure one with Norton anti-virus. For anybody with a similiar problem, go to: http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q177078

    DO NOT EVER!!! Use the Guest account. This is a very large security risk. Make sure you have all the accounts installed on all he computers. This will help with access permissions (those will need to be set as well as "NEW" shares use basic limited acess permissions)
