Can't map network drive

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by J David Ellis, Nov 20, 2006.

  1. ComputerA is cabled to a router for internet feed and the
    router is connected to a wireless access point which is
    connected to wireless computerB. Both computers run XP SP2.

    ComputerA can access ComputerB C$ but ComputerB cannot
    access ComputerA C$. A computerB attempt to Map Network
    Drive fails with "Access is denied," as does command-line
    net use... . Both computers access the internet and
    computerB can print to a computerA printer.

    The computers use the same account name and password; both
    are administrators. For printer and file sharing NetBEUI
    protocol is used. Software firewall is disabled. Simple file
    sharing is enabled. No NTFS permission has been knowingly
    changed.

    I've done a lot of web and MSKB searching, including
    www.ezlan.net, without being able to find a diagnostic
    procedure. Any suggestions?

  2. I disabled Simple File Sharing and the problem disappeared.
    No idea why.

    Simple File Sharing implies Guest authentication but you are using user
    authentication.
