I am having a bit of a dilemma. I cannot seem to browse the files using a UNC path (\\dnsname\path) from a normal windows 7 professional. If you type the path (ex: \\dnsalias\ ) it pops up but nothing shows in the window.
It works on XP clients with no issues and I can see all the contents of that UNC path within the explorer window. But on the Windows 7 machines, its empty.
I have made sure that the WebClient Service is on and added the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\LanmanServer\Parameters\DisableStrictNameChecking = 1
The server I am trying to browse is a sharepoint site and the name is a CNAME I added in DNS to resolve to that server. It works on the XP machines and strangely enough on my Windows 7 machine but nobody else's Win 7 workstation.
