I am having a problem connecting to a share on a windows 7 machine from either a windows xp box or a windows 7 box. the problem seems like it might be intermittent but it doesn't work at all right now.

When i try to connect to the share or even do a "Net View \\computername" i get the following error. "the specified server cannot perform the requested operation".

I can connect to the share from another windows 7 box so i know the share is working. also i have connected to it from the same machines multiple times before today with no problems.
