    please help…can’t share files

    Locked

    by themachinelavene ·

    my LAN consists of 1 win2000server & 1 win2000pro.

    I am trying to share folders between the 2 and cannot, I have them
    both in the same WORKGROUP and they have the same subnet, I have
    rebooted them.

    From the 2000pro I can see the servers computer name under network but
    when I click on it I get ” ‘servername’ is not available” The network path is not found”

      Check to see the SERVER service and the WORKSTATION service are started on both systems.
      This’ll enable proper inter-sharing between the two.

      can you ping each other? what do you see when you type ‘ipconfig’ in a DOS window?

      Go to each machine and enable print & file sharing then go to the volume and give rights to the network if the UNC path deos not have rights it will not be able to access it
