Cannot map to a network folder
Posted on 2006-06-12
This one has me tearing my hair out.
The machine has XP Pro SPT with all the updates current. I need to map to two folders on another machine in the workgroup. Sometimes I can see all the PC's in the workgroup but no files or folders on the machines. Sometimes I can only see the local machine. I've tried mapping from start> run> \\servername\filename and I get the message that the path cannot be found. I've turned off Norton, made sure the Windows Firewall is turned off, etc. I even ran the recovery disks and still get the same results. I can go to other machines in the network and they map just fine both from Windows and from the command lines. I'd like to know what else I can try.
PLEASE offer suggestions!!!
