Drive connection problems

By ptom98 ·
Ive got my work laptop and am connecting through a router to my adsl line at home to access all my work documents.
the problem is i get internet access but i cant access the drives stored on my office network.
sometimes i see them (but dont have access) and other times i dont see them at all, does anyone have any ideas on what i should do?

Drive connection problems

by tech_wiz03 In reply to Drive connection problems

Sounds to me like you haven't got the drives marked as shared on the office pc. If win 98/2k you right click drives or folders and chose the share... option but you also need admin rights to allow you to share. Then you need to have a network id name for your laptop on the office pc so it knows who you are and what rights are asigned.

Hope this helps
