Windows xp cannot connect to Windows7 pro share
Posted on 2014-01-14
Small WorkGroup network. (no domain)
Mostly Win7 pro x64 pc's connecting to a Win7 pro x64bit acting as a server.
all windows 7 pc's connect just fine.
there are 2 xp pro sp3 pc's that are denied access
get "server is not accessible"
\\server\c$ same thing.
UNC is off, No Software Firewalls.
"change Advanced Sharing Settings" on the server is setup correctly.
can ping server IP
xp pc's used be connected to a domain server but was properly dis-joined and those
profiles were deleted.
so basically, win7 is refusing xp only
