network error message; \\... is not accessible you may not have permission...
Posted on 2004-05-01
Hi I have 3 computers set up on an ad-hoc network. all three are running windows xp home edition. The three computers are called JAKE, BRETT, and FAMILY They are all part of the same workgroup, 'home'. Family is the host computer and shares internet connection perfectly through ICS. JAKE can access the internet be seen and accessed from all computers and BRETT can also access the internet be seen and accessed from all. FAMILY can be seen in My Network Places from all computers but when clicked on from either JAKE or BRETT the following error message occurs:
\\Family 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 network permissions.
Access is denied.
There are no firewalls enabled and I have no anti virus software as yet so none of these could be interfering. I also have made sure no programs except the very basics are running in the background on both the host and the client computers. Would appreciate anyones help asap
