Accessing shared folders in a Network

I set up a folder on my desktop that I want to share with my network. One of my laptops can access it, with no problem. Two other laptops get "access denied" messages. Since I can get to the shared folder from one of my PCs I am assuming that I did the sharing correctly. Why in the world can't the other laptops get through? I tried turning the firewall off, but that didn't help. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Does anyone know what I could possibly TRY to get this thing working? IT's driving me daffy. :) Thank you in advance!

Hi ,

Please first check shared folder permission. You can grant full access to Everyone on the shared folder and see if other laptops can access the share.

If you have given everyone permission but it still doesn't work, then please refer to the following steps:

1.How did you access the shared folder from other laptops? Via \\IP address or \\hostname? If you are accessing shared folder via \\IP address, please change to \\hostname and see if it works.

2.Please make sure you can ping IP address successfully.

2.If A access B's shared folder, then A acts as SMB client and B acts as SMB server.

Go to A's SMB client log and B's SMB server log to see if there are something related for us to troubleshooting.

Best Regards,

Candy
