How do I access shared folders over network XP pro v2002 sp3.

I set up a network and have a workgroup called Workgroup.
when I go to "entire network"->microsoft windows network->Workgroup and attempt to enter a certain computer I receive the message:

"\\comp_3 is not accessible. Yu might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access to permissions.

Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnect all previous connections to the server or shared resource and try again."

What should I do?

I have already enable netbios in the tcp\ip for the LAN for both computers. I have put on a password for the user of the computer that holds the file and subsequently get prompted on the remote computer, but even after entering the username and password of the host computer I still get this message. What do I need to do to access files\folders on another computer?

Click on my name above in this response and read my “how-to” guide titled, “You try to connect to a share but are asked for a Username/Password

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

✔ Best Answer
well it turns out I just had to enable simple file sharing and it worked.
It would still be great to know how to do this with simple file sharing disabled
