Windows 10: Network Error "Windows cannot access \\folderpath"
Network Error "Windows cannot access \\folderpath"
Two computers, on the same network wired. One the one computer I have a folder being shared, a folder that is on the desktop. I have it to share over the network, also that computer has password protected sharing OFF. On the other computer when I try to access that folder I get this error...
Windows cannot access \\DESKTOP-XXXXXX\XXXX
You do not have permission to access \\DESKTOP-XXXXX\XXXX.
Try the IP. If you are running any kind of Internet Security software, it can cause issues with networking, along with not having the adapter set for Private.
I'm sorry what do you mean by "try the ip".
Try the IP.
I'm sorry but i Don't know what that means, can you explain it different.
What is the IP of your computer? What is the IP of the device that you need to connect to? This is not hard stuff, since it is the one thing that everyone knows where to find when they are asked and it is how the computers see each other on the network. IP's associate with MAC ID's of network adapters. Netbios is a simple name assigned that can allow lookup with the simple name vs. the IP.
IP's are always the way that has been used since the dawn of networking for systems to talk to each other on a network and the Internet.
Open a command prompt on your system, then type ipconfig. You'll see an entry come up labeled IPv4 address. Use that to create a UNC name such as \\192.168.0.2\users\public. Instead of a machine name, you're using an equivalent IP address. That's what the first respondent was talking about. Just a different way of identifying a computer on your network.
Of course, you need to do this on the PC you're trying to reach over the network, and use its address from the machine you're working on. Hope this makes sense.
No big thing!
Even on the pc it will be hard to access the desktop as its private part of a user profile so trying over a network for that folder will only work if you have the rights of that users profile. try another folder outside the users profile
I've been having some crazy network problems over the past three weeks. I upgraded to Windows 10 about 5 weeks ago, so I am not sure if they are connected. I attempted to reinstall a wireless network printer (HP Officejet 8600) to my very modest...
Hi all -
I use a F5 VPN to connect to work and have recently (IIRC) experienced issues connecting while using Win10/10130. F5 doesn't have any info. Has anyone else seen similar issues?
I do have my WiFi internet working, I can access internet all right. But if I go to Windows 10 Settings and then try to open "Network & Internet", it takes forever and it does not load. While that happens, performance temporarily decreases, even...
Hello. I am having a problem with my LAN wired connection showing "Unidentified Network" I have No Internet Access, and it happened after I upgraded my desktop PC from Windows 7 to 10. The first day I upgraded, my Internet worked perfectly. It's a...
I am locked out of other computer through the network. Originally it asked for my credentials (username/password), which did not work. I found out I have to give it the machinename\domain. So, when I entered that, I still put the wrong name (or...
