At home we have 3 computers running Win7 Home Premium, x64. They are all members of the same workgroup. I can map a network drive by ip address but when I use the computer name I get "access denied". I've checked and double checked that the name and password are being typed correctly. The logged in user is a member of the Administrators group on all computers.
C:\>net use x: \\server\c$ The password is invalid for \\desktop01\c$. Enter the user name for 'server': joe Enter the password for server: System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied.
C:\>net use x: \\192.168.1.104\c$ The command completed successfully.
I could just use ip addresses to map drives and carry on, but we're using dhcp and the addresses could change without warning or notice (and I don't want to use static, the point is to reduce administrivia not add more!).
Any ideas how I can get
net use \\computername\... to work too?
