    We're all members of the WORKGROUP.

    I created a new folder in my documents folder and followed your instructions, I can can now access that folder from Map Network Drive, plus Users and everything below seems to be map-able, will play around with some more and if I run into anything weird I respond here otherwise I'll mark this as resolved.

    Thanks!

    Again I spoke too soon.

    My wife's computer can access mine, but the computer I have in my workshop doesn't even see mine, it sees my wife's, our backup (Ubuntu) computer and itself, but not mine.

    Another interesting thing, I setup my wife's old computer in my office, logged in as my wife, it has 2 mapped locations, the Ubuntu and my old computer (her new one), when i attempt to map a network drive, the only computer shown after clicking Browse... is itself. Logged as me (this used to be my computer too), there are several mapped drives, and when I attempt to map a network drive all 5 computers are listed and I can map to any of them.

    All referenced computers are laptops except for the Ubuntu, which is a desktop computer.
