\\computer is not accessible.....

I am constantly getting the above message that a new computer that I added to my local Lan in the same workgroup. I have shared its C drive but I am not able to bring up its shares? I am only getting "\\computername 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. Access is denied."

Does anyone know how to solve this issue? Thank you

Have you by any chance got a password set on the user accounts or are you letting it auto login with no password? You might need identical user accounts with identical usernames and passwords on both machines to be able to access over the network.

I am not setting any passwords, I am setting the share to allow everyone access. Thanks

Then I guess your best bet would be to reformat and start over again.
