Accessing Shared Folders in a Network
Posted on 2013-01-10
Hi All, I am having a problem with workstations accessing a shared folder on our network. Here is the setup:
Computer at Location A:
The folder I shared is called "ChefTec" and is located in a computer named "FRONT" in C > Program Files > ChefTec. I shared the folder by right-clicking on the folder > sharing and security > permissions > adding the domain users and computers that will be accessing the computer.
Location B, Client Computer:
I log in to a workstation where I would like to access the shared folder and do the following: My Computer > Double-click Network and see the "FRONT" computer listed > Double-click "FRONT"
I get this message: "Windows cannot access \\FRONT there may be a problem with your network. File and print sharing resource (FRONT) is online but isn't responding to connection attempts"
The computers are in different locations but we are all in the same network and domain connected through sonic wall. I can ping the computers from both locations, but just can't access the shared file folder.
One thing to add is that all computers at location A can access the shared folder. Its just the computers at location B having problems.
Any help is appreciated. Please let me know if you need clarification. Thanks.
