      Just a thanks for posting this

      I have 2 pcs both running XP pro and both connected to a small hub. PC1 could access PC2 but not visa versa. I just couldn't figure out why the sharing windows were different and the security tab was missing from PC1.

      After following the link all became clear. I don't hold a MCSE but this site is proving extremly helpful. Great site Daniel.

        Adding Security Tab

        It seems you have FAT file system not NTFS
        all you need to do is convert your File system to the NTFS

        To convert a volume to NTFS from the command prompt:-
        Open Command Prompt. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.

        In the command prompt window, type:
        'convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs '

        For example, typing convert D: /fs:ntfs would format drive D: with the ntfs format. You can convert FAT or FAT32 volumes to NTFS with this command.

          You are perfectly right in describing how to convert to NTFS, only you forgot to read the original post. He already has NTFS, and he's using XP HOME.

                  Windows XP Home only supports Simple file sharing.

                  Windows XP Pro supports both Simple and Advanced file sharing.

                  Windows XP Home does not support joining a Domain.

                  Windows XP Pro Supports a Domain and Workgroup environment.

                  Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Windows XP Home doesnt even support creating more than one User in the SAM (or if it even has a SAM). I know you can create "users" but if you check the user name for lets say bob for example it still shows as "%computer%\user". I ran into this problem because a customer had 2 Windows XP home machines and a Window 2000 DC and they needed to access a share located on the Domain...

                      from windows.rogierstuger.com :

                      Security tab in XP Home (like in XP Pro)
                      1) Download the x86 (Intel) version of the Security Configuration Manager (SCESP4I.EXE) from http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nt...cm/default.asp
                      2) Double click SCESP4I.EXE and extract the contents to a temporary folder
                      3) Make a system restore point. This program does not come with an uninstaller
                      4) Right-click Setup.inf and select Install
                      5) Reboot
                      make xp behave:

                        That's a nice one...

                        Did you test it by yourself to see if it works?
                        Cheers,
