This is for a Windows XP SP3 machine, trying to access file shares on a Windows Server 2008 R2 system.
The client had access to the server previously, and other clients on the same network are not having problems. Other network functions for the troubled client do not seem to be affected.
When trying to access a file share via
\\IPAddress\sharename\ the following error is returned: "The network path was not found". This also happens when trying to access the server by running
\\IPAddress\. However, the server pings fine by name and IP from the same machine.
Windows Firewall is off, and the user does have appropriate permissions. The IP configuration, including address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS server, are correct. The system has been rebooted several times during troubleshooting.
What am I missing?
