SharedDocs is not accessible

  orangewhiteblue 21:52 23 Mar 2004


When trying to access a shared folder on a network I keep getting the dialog below. This is a one way thing - I can access shared folders in one direction but not the other!

\\Comupter\SharedDocs is not accessible. You might not have permission to run this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

The firewall was disconnected on the PC I'm trying to access.

Any advice welcome

I cant find the ruddy link now - but I entered the exact error message into symantec's website thinking it could be a firewall problem, that in turn directed my to microsoft support and a registry tweak that solved the problem after many many months of tinkering!
