First off, are you typing it in properly? it should be of the format "\\servername" (without the quotes).

Are you a local administrator of your local computer & the server?

I dont really know what permission levels are required, but these seem like obvious things to check for, and correct if at all necessary.

Yes, I type the server name correctly and I am the  local administrator of your local computer & the server.

Ok, I tried put server IP address, instead of server name '\\servername', and it works.
Thanks for your reply.
