I have a small home network with 2 computers running Windows 7 and one running Windows Home Server. For over a year everything has been working fine. Recently though, all of the sudden, the WHS machine is unable to access the other 2 Win7 computers on the network through file sharing. It can see all the computers, including itself, in the workgroup (named WORKGROUP), but trying to access the others generates the error:
\\*servername* not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The specified network name is no longer available.
I am using the same user account with the same password and administrator privileges on all three machines. I know the other 2 machines are set up correctly because they have no problem accessing their shared resources with one another. They can also see and access the WHS machine with no problems.
So, why can't i access the Win7 computers from the WHS computer?
