Shared Folders Problem
I'm working on 70-270 and have bought a couple computers in order to network them together and follow along in the book. I also have a server, but I'm beginning with workgroups vs. domains so that I can get the basics out of the way. Here's where I ran into a problem. Right now, I have two computers connected via a switch. Both can ping each other and both have each others computer name within the workgroup folders (by the way, I'm running XP Pro). But only one of them can access the others shared folders! When trying to access "PC A" from "PC B", I get this error message: \\PC A\SharedDocs is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the Administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found. I've checked to make sure the folder is shared on PC A. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.
Sometimes you've got to prove to your friends that you're still worth a damn!
