I have 2 machines MACHINE1 and MACHINE2 running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 and am trying to map to the D: drive from MACHINE1 machine on to MACHINE2. I enter \\MACHINE1\D$
as the drive address but then it tells me access is denied. The account name and password is the same on both machines (no domain here) and I have tried specifying MACHINE1\Qu0ll as the user name but it still won't let me map the drive.
Curiously I can see the D: drive when I double click on MACHINE1 in Network but I cannot write to it without "Access denied" messages again.
I would have thought this was fairly simple so what am I doing wrong? Is it some kind of firewall issue?
