I have a client running a Windows Home Server network. There is a laptop that cannot connect to another peer in the network.
I have tried all the advanced network settings I could find on the web, and have turned password protected sharing off. I have turned the firewall off on both laptop and inaccessible workstation.
The laptop can connect to the server and the other Win 7 station. But as soon at the inaccessible workstation is clicked, a login box pops up. No login will work. I have defined a new administrative user and used that login information but it will not allow access.
The inaccessible workstation can read and write to the shares on the laptop, which is how the client works around this problem. The laptop can ping the inaccessible workstation. The other Win7 machine can access the inaccessible (to the laptop) workstation.
The client is stuck on wanting to be able to access their home workstation from their laptop.
