I am using Windows 10 on my PC and am using widows File explorer to try to connect to a Window XP machine on our domain.   When I type \\IEED0360 which is the name of the PC on the domain (machine is turned on,connected to network and responds to ping) I get the following error message. .. \\IEED0360 is not accessible . You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. This servers clock is not synchronised with the primary domain controllers clock
However I can successfully connect using the IP address.
What could be the cause ?
