Windows 7: Problem trying to connect to Win95 share.

07 Sep 2012   #1

Win 7 Pro 32 bit
Problem trying to connect to Win95 share.

I have a Windows 95 pc with some shared folders. The shares are set up with password-level permissions. This pc is not on our domain, but is on our network.
Most of the Windows 7 (domain) computers can connect to these shares. I have one Windows 7 PC that can't even find the win95 pc. I open explorer, click on Network in the left pane, in the address bar I enter \\computername or \\computername\sharename and I get nothing. There's probably one little setting somewhere that's causing the problem, but I'm having a hard time finding it.
