Connect to network share via UNC
Posted on 2008-06-12
For years, I have connected to other servers via my Windows XP laptop using an address of something like "\\winservera" from within Windows Explorer. This has always worked fine. However, suddenly last week it quit working.
I get a message saying "Windows cannot find "\\winservera. Check the spelling and try again, or try searching for the item by clicking the Start button and then clicking Search."
The only thing I can think that was a little different was that I had been at a conference and connected to several other networks. But I didn't really do any special setup or anything. Any idea why I can't connect? Any ideas on how I can fix this?
