The User name thing is valid. One thing to try is IPX protocols. That may be the reason you can't see them.

You can't share NTFS Partitions on anything other than NT. So, if you have an NTFS partition being shared over the network, nothing other than NT, 2k, and XP will be able to see it.

Wrong. 9x systems can't see them directly, but the network uses the computer they are on to translate them

I am also interested in how this turns out. When I was having network problems, I assumed it was because the main computer was running a different OS then the other computers connected. Now the new main computer runs XP like all of the rest, but won't access files from the other computers, although it will allow the others to print and read files off of it. I'm just beginning to think networks aren't supposed to totally understand the whole network thing.

MOS: I had a win 98 box that wouldn't see my NTFS shares. It saw everything else, just not the NTFS shares. It saw my thumb drive [USBFS/FAT16], printer, shared tasks, cd burner.. just not the NTFS partitions. I added a FAT32 partition, and it worked flawlessly. Trust me on this one.

You also have to delete the shares that have the Prefix '$' --that means it'* hidden. It'* fairly straightforward. I am sure you know how to do it. If your ME box can't see your XP box, then obviously there is something else wrong. If it can see it, maybe not necessarly the things it is sharing, then you are at least connecting to it.

This is likely to be the problem for file and printer sharing. Again, I can address each other using WinVNC, but no sharing. My problem is that it'* a work laptop (hp NW8000), and I don't want to dork up my lan settings for work.

I need to investigate profiles, or see if it can handle being part of two workgroups. I don't want to re-configure each time I go back and forth.

I agree too. I thought that you have to have windows NT (2000, XP, etc) to see the NTFS shares.

That being said, it'* a good thing WinVNC 4.0 has the ability to cut and paste from the remote computer, so I can still use that feature to transfer files. And that being the case, I don't need them to be in the same workgroup.

Even if the systems aren't in the same Workgroup, they can still communicate fine. I have four systems in my network, two are in one workgroup, and two in another. They all talk to each other just fine. In windoze it'* effortless, in UNIX it takes a little more configuring.
