Mapped drives do not stay connected on Windows XP Home peer-to-peer network
Posted on 2006-05-03
In our office, we have a single Windows XP Home computer acting as a host for database data in a peer-to-peer network. Six other computers and a few laptops need to access this information. I mapped the shared folder to the z: drive on each machine ("reconnect at login" checked). There are no passwords to complicate matters.
The mapping never stays connected. They drop off intermittantly.
I read similar questions on the knowlegebase, but most involve writing logon scripts in server/client network environments. Isn't there a simple answer?
