Hi, I have recently begun studying for my first mcp. I am doing 70-290 and am having some trouble connecting my xp pro machine to the windows 2003 domain. I have physically connected both machines using a crossover cable and have verified that the connection works fine. You can map a network drive and see shared folders etc. You can ping each other.
However when I try to add the xp pro machine to the windows 2003 domain it wont let me. I have tried adding a computer in server 2003 with the IP address and when you try viewing shared folders etc you get error messages like "Access Denied". I think there must be some configuration that needs to be done on both sides to make this work but I am not sure what steps need to be taken.
Any help much appreciated.
