Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional for PC
I am facing a problem in one of my clients office. There are 7 Desktops and 5 Laptops in this office. The problem started from the day when the client purchased Sony Vaio Laptops with Windows Vista Home edition. I have networked all the desktops with a 16 port switch, and all the laptops are wireless connected through a Netgear Router. Through the router all desktop and laptop can access the internet perfectly. But one of the desktop is used for file sharing (Windows XP Prof.) , all desktop and laptop use this desktop as a server for file sharing. Now the problem is that when any of the Sony laptop try to access this Server, after typring the user name and password there is a error "Logon unsuccessful : be sure you type the user name and password correctly": But they can access other Xp Prof desktops easily. I removed the password from Xp Prof. desktop and restarted it but still it asks for user name and password. Out of 5 laptops 1 Laptop is having Windows XP Professional but he can access the server easily. I tried each and every step on this Servers group policy settings and allowed the Sony laptops but no success. I uninstalled all the antivirus software from the Server and laptops. No firewall is turned on. Can you help?
Make sure domain settings to your server are correct on the notebook computer. These settings are located in the control panel of the system setting.
Whats the operating system of your server?
Make sure the firewall in windows security is turned off too. Sometimes that thing sneaks up on you.
I haven't used the home edition of Vista but another reason why it might not be working is because it isn't the business version. Microsoft might have added extra security to prevent the home version from connecting to a server. I know we use the business version of Vista at work and it is working that way on the intranet server without a problem.
I would check with Microsofts website on that.
