Unable to see all shares, but can go directly to a share
Posted on 2006-06-20
I have a laptop and a desktop on a windows network just using a workgroup. So from the desktop i can just go \\laptop to see the list of shares on the laptop, but from the laptop this does not work, although i can go like \\desktop\Sharename to go directly to the share. \\desktop just returns an error message saying i may not have permissions to view this. When i do this though, even though it doesnt let me in, if i got to computer manager and look at 'sessions' i can see that sessions were started on the laptop to the desktop.
Its just handy to not have to always remember what share names are up there, so could anyone tell me how to fix the permissions? I was looking at the user's permissions and the share's permissions (im not even sure which its talking about to be honest...) and they looked ok, but obviously im missing something.
Thanks in advance,
