I know I'm missing something obvious but I can't see is.

I have two computers one with XP and the other with Vista that are using a comment wireless network for my home. Since these are home machines they were configured without a password for logon.

I have set up what directories I want share on each machine.

When I map from the VISTA machine to the XP machine it works as it should - great! When I try to map from the XP machine to the VISTA machine it wants an ID/password. I can't get pass this.

Is there a default set - I've tried admin/admin with no luck. If I have to set an ID/pass how is it done and on what maching.

Many thanks
Bob

Is this Vista Home version? If it is anything like Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate versions, you created a password for the default account named Administrator when Vista was first installed/used. Use that, or create one for the Vista account whose folder you are attempting to map.

Vista's default is to inhibit file sharing with no passworded account.
