Dial up connectivity and networking
Posted on 2014-04-10
I have a customer with a mine in FL. There is no data access there whatsoever. Twice daily they want to dial out to another computer in NC for a very small upload of data. I have both PC's in front of me, testing things out before one of them goes to FL. I can connect the FL pc to the NC pc by using a dial up connection. In the NC pc, it shows that they are connected. At that point on the FL pc, I should be able to go to \\ncpc and see shared files. But I get a message "Windows cannot access \\ncpc"
When you are in dial up, you really are not using the NIC card at all, but should still be able to view files.
What am I missing?
