Question

Posted

Hiya

 

I set up file sharing for all of the computers in our office a couple of years ago and haven't really had to touch it since, but we've now got three new employees and three people who now need to access a shared folder on my computer. 

 

Networking is not my fort

Hi

 

I tried this but it didn't work. 

 

The server is my PC - Matt-PC.

 

There's a user account on the laptop called "David" and a password set. There's a user account on the server with the same credentials. The David user account has read/write access to the shared folder. But when I browse to the server on the laptop, I can't see the shared folder.

 

Server is Windows 7, laptop is Windows XP, if that makes any difference. 

 

Incidentally the computer in reception - also XP - can't access the shared folder on the server either. 

 

Thanks
