Mapping a drive to the computer you're on.
Posted on 2002-03-18
I have a laptop and a desktop both setup for Win98 peer to peer networking using Client for Microsoft Networks. On my laptop I can map a drive back to itself by right-clicking on Network Neighborhood in an explorer window, Select Map Network drive, Select a drive letter and then in the Path textbox type in
This correctly maps a lettered drive back to my laptop. However, when I try the same procedure on my desktop I get an error message: "This operation cannot be performed to your own computer"
Any ideas why it works on one PC and not the other?
