We are trying to setup a shared folder on a Server 2008 Web Edition server that would be accessible to setup as a mapped drive over a VPN from a Server 2008 Standard Edition server. We have done this with Standard-Standard before, but Standard-Web does not seem to be working.
We can right click on the folder and select sharing options and set permissions, but we cannot access it from the Standard Edition server. We cannot even browse the share from the Web Edition server itself. If we type in \\SERVERNAME\ we can see the share listed, but we cannot browse it. (Says: Windows cannot access \\SERVERNAME\ShareName. Check the spelling of the name....Error Code 0x80004005). We get the same error when trying to browse the share from the Standard Edition server. Net Use from the command line yields: Error 53 Network Path Not Found.
They can ping each other by name and IP address.
We are using the same VPN setup (LogMeIn Hamachi) for the Standard to Standard setup and that is working just fine.
Does Server 2008 Web Edition limit file/folder sharing to make this impossible?
