    Workgroup peer-to-peer: impossible to log in just to one PC of the LAN


    Desktop/PC
    Windows 10 Education

    Hello,

    I'm the tech lead of a multimedia lab in a high school. After having joined in a peer-to-peer workgroup (workgroup is the name of the group) fourteen computers running windows 10 1909 with the same hardware and shared two folders on them, I may access any of them from any other and see those folders but one PC.
    It is impossible to log in to it; it displays an error message related to wrong credentials.
    I've checked its shared options and are ok as the other PC on the LAN.

    The same credentials work fine when used on the PC itself!

    I don't know what maybe the reason why that issue is occurring.

    Thank you for all of the addresses may help me to find the fix.

    Giuseppe.

    As the same credentials work on the specific system the major failure cause seems to me set correctly, you have the NTFS File rights set correctly for access.

    This would lead to two possibilities ...

    Share permissions not set or not correctly set.

    A firewall not set to allow access to the files specifically using a rule (sharing is I can see set correctly) This could be something in either Windows Firewall or a third party firewall included in a security suite

    I would think that the last item is the most likely as your other setups seems textbook

    I've found that there is no issue if I create and use another account.
    That said I've deleted and created again the account (account name: "utente") with the issue and it is occurred again!
