    Do you have accounts set up on each machine for the 'other user' trying to connect?

    I'm assuming you are using simple networking, and NOT running a domain (if you don't know, you are not!)

    Re: XP Pro and Permissions

    Let's try an example. On the desktop, you I assume are "sharing" one or more folders or drives. When you do so you'll be in a window like the attached. You must click on the Permissions button and add a user who will be accessing the desktop FROM the laptop. Do the "reverse" of this on the laptop. Let us know how you're making out.
