    Computer Network Error Logging on Other Computers


    I have a small home network with four PCs. Although I have the same user and password on each computer I cannot log on to one of the other ones.Click image for larger version.

ID:	185508I get this error message and do not know what to enter as the normal Microsoft account I have on each computer does not work. Very frustrating! I would appreciate any help provided.

    Hi Don.

    So is it one computer that you cannot log onto from any of the other three?

    For the computer that you can't log onto please check the Network Sharing options. Should look like this

    Attachment 185516

    I got to this by Start => Settings => Network and internet => Network and Sharing Center => Advance

    In particular the Network should be Private.

    Is the box your are trying to log onto a NAS. If so which one. I know many members have NAS's so the make model should help. It may also help in a google search.

    Is this problem new problem or something that has always been there? I assume all boxes are V1709, build 16299.371.?

    What you are saying doesn't make sense to me. Are you sure the pc logged into the account on startup? Try restarting and verifying you are actually logged into that account. If so, maybe try creating a new account with a different password and give permission to that account on your nas and then try using those credentials to connect.

    Edit:
    Sorry Ken, didn't know you had answered.

    What I have is four computers. Lets call them N,D,L,and T. All are V1709 and D is 1803 but this problem was occurring before the 1803 upgrade. I have also just added a QNAP 251A for backups and file storage. There are some other wireless tablets that come and go and a printer which I am not concerned with at this time.

    My goal is to open File Explorer and see the other four devices under the networks area in the left hand navigation (NAV) group under "Networks"(NET). For my wife (N) I may just want to map a drive for her use. The computers L and T are multimedia units but are also used infrequently as regular PCs. Or when I screw up my unit (D) which happens more than I want.

    This is the current situation:

    L,T, and the NAS are on all the time. D & N are on most of the time but are off sometimes. If there is a master I would like it on D.

    D - Opening the network area in the NAV-NET group I only see N and the NAS. However in the quick links I can see all the other computers including the NAS, which also shows up as a media source.

    N - NAV-NET group N only. Media (MED) group L, N, and NAS.

    L - NAV-NET group D,L,N,T and the NAS. MED - L,N, and NAS

    T - NAV-NET group N and NAS. MED - L,N, and NAS

    How is that for a mess!

    It almost seems like the complete network needs a reboot somehow. Ken and oldrock if you can help me out of the mess I would be your friend forever . . .

    The PC your logged into is the username password the same as the admin on the PC your connecting too as by default Windows passed that. Have you setup shares on each PC and given everyone rights on the share and you also need to set NTFS permissions or you won't get in

    Except for computer N I made the same user and password (my Microsoft one) in all the other units. Folder shares have been set up in all the computers. I cannot remember if the shares were for everyone or specific users but will check. Didn't know about the NTFS permissions. Can you please explain. Thanks for the reply, Don

    Don were you using Homegroups to share? I ask as 1803 drops Homegroups.

    From your very screen shot where did the user name Don come from.

    Just for my clarity. You say you are using a Microsoft user name. These are normally in the form of an email address.

    Don looks like a local user name. So are you logging in local or are you using a Microsoft account.

    Did you confirm that all PC's look as per my screen shot?

    Was not using homegroup. Ahh maybe I should be using my MS ID ie my email address? I think I made a user Don on each computer but maybe not - have to check. My MS account is my email address. Yes, all computers are like your screen shot.
    OK now when Ijust tried to log onto the other computers I could both see them and log in fine except for N. would that be because there is not my user on that machine? (wife's computer) So you have given me something to work with as I understand it each computer needs my MS ID as a user and I need to use this user when logging into the other units. I will try that this evening and get back to you. All computers are using NTFS if that's what your other question was about. Thanks again for the help.

    Yes on your wife's machine to log on you need an ID.

    And it would need to be an Admin level if you want to see your wife's files.

    Glad you are making progress. This is going to be an awful mess for the public at large when 1803 starts to roll.
