All of the machines talk to each other fine, with the exception one computer who will not except the credentials of the logging on user. I get the following error message logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer To recap: If I try to see the share) from another machine, I get the above mentioned error.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Basically to be able to access shares on a machine (server) you need 2 things: The server service must be running and permissions must be granted for “network logon right”. If you’re running different versions of windows or even different service pack levels on windows XP, then default settings might differ. “Network logon right” can be checked/verified in local security policy.

    And, to add to the above answer. User Rights Assignments are granted to a particular "built in" security group. In this case it is the Log on from the network or something like that. I don't remember off hand because I am Beta testing Vista and don't have NT/2000/XP to verify. This is located on the default local security policy for local computer. In a workgroup environment you must log on with a user account that is on the local machine that you are trying to connect to. This is not the case in a domain environment. Also, there is lack of details because different versions of Windows allow different access methods.
