I have a domain with 1 server (SBS 2003) and 3 PCs (LAPTOP, CORNER and DESK) running Windows XP Pro
I have one user account, John, that I use to sign onto all workstations.
I have File & Print Sharing enabled on all workstations.
John is an Administrator in the Domain Admins group
All PCs have static IPs: 192.168.0.###
I CAN make the following connections for printer and filesharing:
DESK to CORNER
DESK to LAPTOP
CORNER to LAPTOP
CORNER to DESK
LAPTOP to DESK
Now here's the part that is driving my CRAZY!!
PROBLEM: I cannot connect to the CORNER PC from the LAPTOP PC.
I can ping CORNER by name from LAPTOP
NSLOOKUP resolves all names and IP addresses
When I try to connect, I get the following:
\\corner is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The user name could not be found.
Here's what I have tried:
Disable "Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration" on the server
From LAPTOP, leave and re-join the DOMAIN
Added LMHOSTS records to all machines with the 4 names and addresses preloading
I have checked over and over for typos, but I haven't found any.
