Can't access files from another computer on the network
Posted 18 November 2010 - 03:21 PM
If I try to open a folder from the Mac, the error is "The operation can't be completed because the original item XYZ can't be found." The error from Computer P is "XYZ 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 access permissions."
I have checked that file sharing is turned on, and even turned off sharing for the relevant folders on Computer G and then turned it back on again. I uninstalled the firewall (Comodo) and that didn't do it. I also temporarily disabled the Windows firewall. I also made sure that the Guest account was active on Computer G. I even set up a different user and tried to access the files as that user, but always got the same error messages.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

did you change anything, like computer name or domain/work group?
have you tried rebooting all the computers?
can you try - from the run command - the IP address of one of the computers, like '\\192.168.1.102' and does anything come up, or '192.168.1.102\c$' - minus the quotes in both examples.
edit - XYZ is the file that cannot be accessed

Computer G (the one with the problem) is XP Home SP3. The other PC is XP Pro.
No changes to computer name or work group.
Yes, I have rebooted all the computers and the router.
I tried running the IP address (\\192.168.1.131) from the "good" PC and got an error that "The filemame, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect." I tried it with and without the "\\."
If I run go to the DHCP client table, all the computers show up.
Note: I am able to save files from computer G to either the Mac or computer P. Just not TO computer G from the others.
