Accessing shared folders via a network

Accessing shared folders via a network

Accessing shared folders via a network

I set up a folder on my desktop that I want to share with my network. One of my laptops can access it, with no problem. Two other laptops get "access denied" messages. Since I can get to the shared folder from one of my PCs I am assuming that I did the sharing correctly. Why in the world can't the other laptops get through? I tried turning the firewall off, but that didn't help. Does anyone know what the problem could be? Does anyone know what I could possibly TRY to get this thing working? IT's driving me daffy. :)

Thank you in advance!

Is this a home or work network?

Try creating alternate E-Mails and send the file as an attachment? That's just my advice. It sounds stupid I know.

Did you grant permissions to everyone? If not, are you logged into all of these laptops with the same account.

All running the same version of Windows?
