setting up network between windows 2000 and xp

  scooby43 10:45 02 May 03

hi all

I have windows 2000 on my main machine and windows xp home on the other my network works but when finding it on the other machine xp home it asks for a name and password to connect to the network strange cause I didnt set it to do that and I am also having trouble getting mine to share the internet with the other computer I use zonealarm which I have configured the network through there. am I right in saying that you can or cant set up the network from windows 2000 to xp or does it have to be xp to windows 2000

Scooby you must have a user name and password to log on with. Just create an identical user on both machines. Although you say you have not set up any users, I am sure if you press "Ctrl Alt Delete" you bring up the task mananger window and it tell you who are logged on as.

thanks for ur reply I mean it happens when I go through search and find computers on the network type in my name for my comp and it appears when I double click to open it thats when the user and pass comes up but what ever I try it still keeps coming up?
so it wont let me access what is being shared.
