    Whenever I am trying to access a share one hop away I am getting an error message that says "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request", how can I solve this issue? Below is the port scan from the computer that I am using to try to access the share of the computer:

    I think that this problem can occur when the WINS Client (TCP/IP) protocol is bound to the internal network adapter. This adapter is only for clustering. To resolve this behavior, disable the binding between the WINS Client (TCP/IP) protocol and the internal network adapter.

    A simple restart of the machine should fix the problem.

    Sometimes the 2 computer connecting to each other lose connection and cant authenticate. You can still ping the destination but cant browse for example a shared folder which only a particular security group can access. It's due to lost connection and authentication.

    Hope this helps...

    Error:
    \\10.40.9.101 is not accesible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions.

    I had the same issue, where when I tried to connect one computer to another is would give me the same error message. I searched high and low for the answer, with no success.

    Then it came to me, check to see if Simple File Sharing was turned on. It was, as soon as I shut that off, the computer connecting to the "server" computer would finally prompt me for a user name and password.

    To shut that off:

    On the "server" computer go to Control Panel, on the file menu choose Tools | Folder Options. On the View tab of that window, scroll down to the bottom and uncheck "Use Simple File Sharing".

    I believe another way around this, would be to have the same account on both computers with the same password since it is "Simple" file sharing. I haven't tested that, but in theory that should work. I hope this helps.
