Can't map to a shared folder on a network
Posted on 2006-11-17
I have a problem with a small network and the seeing of a shared folder. The offending pc can ping the pc with the shared folder, but I can't map to it. I also now can't browse under "run" to a Sophos server that was used when it was on the test bench. Internet access is ok. Nothing is appearing in "View Workgroup Computers" not even itself.
Having scanned the web I have checked all the usual stuff. Made sure that it is on the same workgroup, that NetBios was ticked, have restarted the Computer Browser service etc, but still no joy. The only change had to make when I logged on was that the Network Mask was set to 255.0.0.0, instead of 255.255.255.0.
Currently stumped at the moment
