Both computers are in the same workgroup, both computers have common users. I thought that was all I needed, but the big issue is an error message I get when I try to find the computers within the workgroup (My Network Places/View Workgroup computers):
I can issue the same command from my wife's computer and see both computers in the workgroup. BUT, I can't copy in either direction, and I have to believe it's because of the problem associated with the error message.(workgroup name) 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 permissions.
The list of servers for this workgroup is not currently available.
Can anyone tell me why I get this message? It’s my understanding once I can see both computers in the workgroup, the rest is just a matter of making the connection.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
