Try turning off the firewall? This error is a generic no access error.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

But also I cannot the share using the IP address of the machine. I get a network path not found. by example command is below in windows map network drive:

\\192.168.1.2\test2

test2 is shared with everyone..

Can you get out to any of the other computers with 192.168.1.2? You may want to check your cable connection.

Well, usually when you share, you can set permissions. If you're on a domain then you'll have to set user permissions... if you're on a home network you should have the permissions (security AND sharing) to everyone.

figured it out. rechecking tcp/ip for network cards, the file sharing checkboxes were not checked. Assumed they were..

Thanks for your help..
