a client has a Win 7 pro workstation configured to share the quickbooks data folder for a new HP laptop to access in multiuser mode. the laptop is a Win 10 Home. the laptop will not connect to the Win 7 workstation. error that while the network connections is correct the win 7 does not respond. Ping is successful and fast. i have disabled all firewall and internet security on both machines. I have given 'everyone' full rights and access. i can access the Win 7 pro QB shared folder from another win 7 pro in the office with no difficulty. i can connect the Win 7 workstation back to the shared test folder on the Win 10 Home laptop with no issues. i can remote desktop the Win 10 into the Win 7 workstation with no difficulty. I have created a new administrator user account and password successfully but the laptop will not connect. i have no idea what else can be blocking the connection from the Win 10 Home into the Win 7 pro.
