I have a windows xp laptop and have a windows 2000 pc and I can access my windows 2000 pc through my laptop but not the other way round it says the username or password is incorrect any ideas?

firstly disable any firewalls on your laptop, then make sure the drive you want to access has been shared....turn off password protection for your account on your laptop...When I networked Win2k and WinXP machines together at home it was easy :p

Also the only reason that your machine would be screaming "password incorrect" is because its been entered incorrectly ;)

All the firewalls are disabled and I am not putting the password in wrong.
Any more ideas?

Is the username you are using on the laptop registered as a user with sufficient priveledges in Windows XP - remember logging in can be denied as a permission even if the account is active.

Yes I am the administrator on the laptop that is running windows xp and I am the administrator of the pc running windows 2000.
