I have a Workgroup network consisting of Win 10 PCs and one Win 7. I setup one of the Win 10 PCs (Let's call it PC1) to handle a shared folder. I am not using Homegroups, but have set it up to use user accounts and passwords on all the computers, network discovery is turned on and File and Printer sharing is also turned on.
The other Win 10 PCs see the share without a problem. The Win 7 PC can see shared folders on other the other Win 10 PCs (In trying to access it asks for a username and password).
When trying to access PC1 share I get the following error:
"\\PC1 is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this serer to find out if you have access permissions.
Logon failure: user account restriction. Possible reasons are blank password not allowed, logon hour restriction, or a policy restriction has been enforced."
It never asks for a password. I do have a user and password set up on PC1. It's not on a domain so logon hour and policy restrictions should not exists.
PC1 is a brand new PC with no software installed and running MS Defender with default settings. I have tried setting the share with "net use", but get an error 67.
I can ping PC1 via name and IP address.
I'm running out of ideas... anybody else?
