I have a Win7 Home laptop and Win10 Home laptop on same network.\nThey both have the same workgroup name but I cannot get them to access under a shared user account.\n(1) I have the same user acct name on both Laptops with same password.\n(2) I have (in advanced sharing) shared the entire drive that I want to access from the other Laptop with the added permissions to the name of the pertinent User to the share.\n(3) That user being the one I'm logged in on one Laptop and attempting to log in the share on the other Laptop.\n\nNow in the Pre-Win10 days I could then attempt to access the other Laptop with a \\UNC_ShareName\ShareItem\nand it would then prompt me with a password login box. And from there I was in. But that's not happening. It just trys for about 10 seconds and gives an error.\n\nI have the following settings on each Laptop. The wording is a bit different on Win7 and Win10 but below is the essential summation of what both say in Network Advanced Sharing settings\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n(Private) Home or Work (current profile)\nTurn Network discovery ON\nTurn File and Print sharing OFF\nTurn Password Protected sharing ON\nUse User Accounts and passwords to connect to other computers\n-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\n(Public) Network\nTurn File and Print sharing OFF\n(but users with accounts on this computer can still access these folders)\n=============================================\nAs said at start, cannot get the UNC share name to access, just returns an error.\nAs in \\TheOneLaptop\C (the drive) and \\UserAcctName\FolderName (the folder)\nNetwork discovery is ON but nothing is seen except printer.\nAt first I thought it was because one laptop was wifi networked and the other was hard wired ethernet to same router. So I disabled the wifi and carried that laptop to the router room and hard wired it ethernet to the router also. but no go, same problem.\n\nI'm wore out fooling with it tonight but tomorrow I will just remove the ISP Wan (internet access) cable from the modem and then turn on File and Print sharing for all networks private, public, whatever. Maybe then I can see something.\n\nAnybody got some input that might help me?
