    Powershell or DOS commands for diagnosing peer to peer network

    It would seam we would have some tools for diagnosing 1903 share problems. ipconfig net use net start ping. For a share to work I PC needs to belong to a workgroup. I get a IP address is involved somehow and in a way a network \\computername\share is representation of a IP address in some way. When a PC refuses to show up under networking Possibly DOS or Powershell Commands could be used to start a share or create a share. And then make a bat file that would sync up files. ? There must be a list of requirements that must be met before a share can be made and their must be a way to check each of these requirements on each PC in order to narrow down what might be the problem. Right now on this 1903 win 10 when I type in "net view" I get a system error 6118 - that means a server can not be found probably because a firewall is blocking it. I do not have server I am just trying to do a peer to peer share.
    when I type in netstat it finds a lot of things . The thing is when I search for this stuff most of the time I do not know if it will apply to 1903 windows 10 peer to peer file sharing. My basic need is to be able access the hard drive on this on the computer in the other room.

    " My basic need is to be able access the hard drive on this on the computer in the other room."

    So I guess you are having problems with that, right? What is the actual error? We donīt know if it is networking, permission, etc. Did you configure it properly? We need more information.

    From your OP, it seems you already know the basic commands like ping. Windows 10 also have its own Networking troubleshooting. Also, there are tons of threads in these forums with lots of people having networking issues like yours.

    I have followed all the steps in the tutorials and Link Brink said if you use SMB direct only computers dont show up under network. So for me I have shared my drive and I have completed all the things in the tutorials. But its not showing up.

    - - - Updated - - -

    There are two different users on the PC that I am trying to log into. I am able to see the PC now in networking but it refuses to accept my credentials even though I just used them to login. I am certain they are correct.
    So the old name of the computer now shows up. I changed the name of my computer yet the network does not see it that way. So I guess I will need to delete that share or stop it some how and reshare with my new computer name. ?
    I think the name of the computer is the same what I changed was the user name and pass. And that user name and pass wont work for credentials.
    I did find some interesting tools In my search on this site.
