This one had me stumped until a friend pointed me in the right direction.

I had two PC's networked (both running XP Pro) & I could see both in "My Network Places" under "View Networked Computers".

I could connect to one of them without problem, however, when I tried to connect to the other I got the following error!


To resolve this behavior, increase the IRPStackSize value in the registry:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Type regedit, and then click OK.
3. Navigate to the following key:


4. In the right pane, double-click the IRPStackSize value.

NOTE: If the IRPStackSize value does not already exist, use the following procedure to create it:a.  In the Parameters folder of the registry, right-click the right pane.
b.  Point to New, and then click DWord Value.
c.  Type IRPStackSize.

IMPORTANT: Type "IRPStackSize" exactly as it is displayed because the value name is case-sensitive.

5. Change the Base to decimal.
6. In the Value Data box, type a value that is larger than the value that is listed.

If you created the IRPStackSize value using the procedure described in step 4, the default value is 15. It is recommended that you increase the value by increments of 3. Therefore, if the previous value was 15, type 18, and then click OK.

7. Close the Registry Editor.
8. Restart the computer. (each time you create or increase the stack size) each time testing to see if you can connect to the offending machine.

You eventually will  Very Happy
