Ok...have tried everything I can think of and could find to troubleshoot in this group.
I have a network at home ( not a Win 7 "Homegroup"... problem machine was previously in it's own HomeGroup and that was discussed & removed in the following post: http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/93853-cant-leave-unwanted-homegroup.html#post811038
Now prior to removing the HomeGroup from this one Win 7 Pro desktop (MARYANN-PC )...I could access all network places...including MARYANN-PC...from any PC/laptop in the network.
After removing the one problem desktop (MARYANN-PC) from the inadvertent and not wanted "HomeGroup" only on MARYANN-PC via the above forum link...I now can access all PC's/laptops..printers...etc from
MARYANN-PC...but can not create any incoming connections to
MaryAnn-PC from any of the other Network computers ?
I always get the attached manetwork.jpg error when trying to connect in-bound PC's/shared folders on MARYANN-PC from all other pc's/laptops ?
Here's a shot of the entire network in attached allnetwork.jpg. The NetBIOS machines are XP Pro SP3 and/or XP Home Editions SP3 machines.
Have checked line by line the permissions on both HOME_DESKTOP and MARYANN-PC (both Win 7 Pro machines)...and they are exactly the same as far as I can tell ?
Again I can access all shared PC folders from/outward MARYANN-PC...but can not access into the shared files/folders on MARYANN-PC..always get the attached error manetwork.jpg.
Here's the shared folders on MARYANN-PC jpg: ma.jpg attached
I can access all shared files from
MARYANN-PC to/on other machines as: maryann-pc.jpg attahced... can not
access shared folders/files on MARYANN-PC from any machines ??
Can ping MARYANN-PC via name or IP address from all other machines ??
Please help if you can on what I am missing in MARYANN-PC's setup and or my home network setup ?
