Unable to access Server on Workgroup via UNC path
Posted on 2014-03-13
Hi, I can map a network drive on a workgroup but if I try to access via 'Run' by entering the IP address e.g. \\192.168.1.106\shared\ I get the error --
\\192.168.1.106 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have permissions.
There are currently no logon requests available to service this request.
I assume it's permission related as I have to enter the workgroup server user and password when mapping but can't see how I can get around it for the path - any suggestions appreciated.
