Home Network was working now \\computername is not accessible. You may not have permission
Posted on 2003-11-16
My home network has One XP Pro machine (ICS) and master browser. Two Windows ME and one Windows 98 Plus. It has been working failry well for over a year. Recenlty while access one of the other computers on the workgroup, it stopped. I say this because there were no software updates (MS or other) that were installed imediatley before the netwrk stopped working.
I have tried and confirmed: Guest account on Win XP pro, TCP/IP NetBIOS setting enabled and not default on WINS, try turing simple file sharing on and then off, tried recreating network, and a few other hints from the newsgroups, i.e. server service is running, etc.
I can "see" the other computers in the Workgroup window but when I try to access them I get "\\computername is not accessible. You may not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions."
The other workgroup computers can access each other to share printers and files.
I am really flustered and have no other ideas. Help?
