We have 2 windows 7 laptop and 20nos windows XP desktop.
i can connect Windows 7 to windows xp and vise versa except one xp machine.
When i connect that particular XP machine From Window 7 laptop, it is asking Username and Password continuously even if we give the correct password.
But i can connect that same xp machine with all other XP machine like wise i can connect windows 7 with other XP machines except that one machine.

Please help me with this..

I did all the suggests in this forum and still had problems. Then I disabled the windows firewall in the XP computer. Windows 7 now sees XP. I went back and entered the Windows 7 IP address and subnet mask to the exceptions > Add Program >Change Scope> Custom List. And now both XP and Windows 7 are happy. Hope this helps others!!! Thanks for the other suggestions. All helped.
