You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. • This situation occurs whether a user is logged on to the multi-user computer or not. • Is there a permission switch or parameter I have missed?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try \\IP_address to resolve any DNS issues. Make sure you are sharing at lease one file on each computer to make sure network file sharing is turned on. Since it doesn’t seem to be a network with a domain, you should also make sure the users are logging into the mulit-user computers with a valid username and password on the local machine.
