No permission to use network resource

By choy.waigiat ·
I'm using WIN XP Professional. When I double click on a computer name in "My Network Places", an error says "\\abc is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission. The user name could not be found"

Please advise

thanks and regards,

Is this a home network? Have you been able to use these resources without problems in the past or did you just set it up? Do you have a firewall? If so, which one?

Its a office network. I have no problems with other PC that I have setup. This particular PC is the only problem. I'm using a Watchguard Firewall.

the problem is due to the firewall. Its blockin the file and print services. Better uninstall the firewall and check.Also if its a home edition pc, the problem will be due to the restriction in logon due to username and password. try enabling the guest account and check.

Is this workstation a member of a domain or a peer-to-peer network?

Does the workstation have more than 10 IP connections?

If a peer-to-peer, is there a local account on the system with correctly assigned permissions.

If you tuen off the firewall, does it work?

If so, you will most likely need to allow permissions for file sharing (port 445 and 137-139, but note these ports are often closed due to worms that exploit them).

I suppose your problem come from the ?abc? computer settings.
This computer same to have not shared anything for network.
It have denied all rights to read from network.
