I have a SBS 2008 server, when I attempt to connect to Windows 8 pc's, I get the following error: The computer that you are trying to connect cannot be contacted.Verify that is on, awake and connected to the network.

I can connect to XP and win7 pc's that are on the network from this same pc. I have tried adding the url to the compatability view as suggested by others.

Any ideas?
