- Check the share permissions and make sure they are Change and Read (or
Full), not simply read.
- Check the file permsssions and make sure the logged in user (on whatever
machine) has access via a group or via his userID.
- Make sure the user(s) all have the exact same userID and password account
on each machine.
- Make sure the workgroup name is the same on all computers.

From my base computer, I can view the files on the user system. From the user
system, it says that I do not have permission to access the base computer
drives.
On the base system, I have the drives set to allow the group to share my C
drive on the network and users can access and change files. I do not have any
users set up at all. It is just my wife and I who use these. The base is mine
and the other is hers. Whatever I am missing must be on my system since I can
access the other system. No user name or logon required on either machine.

You are using a username on both computers. It's just that if there is only
one existing, without a password, the PC will automatically log you on when
it boots up. From what you say, the (only) username is probably different on
each computer. Make sure the user(s) all have the exact same userID and
password account on each machine.

Check anti-virus settings. Several offer Internet worm virus protection by
blocking the accessing of shared drives by name (ex: \\PC1\sharedfolder) but
may let these be accessed by IP address (ex: \\192.168.1.1\sharedfolder) If
you can access the folder / PC by IP address, then you need to check an set
the anti-virus Internet worm protection setting (such as the Resolve NetBIOS
name.)
