We have a small school network. I can ping my laptop from another machine, but can't map a share on my machine from elsewhere on the network. When I try I get a strange message that there is "no network." All the other computers can see each other's shares without a problem. I know there are probably lots of causes for this, but I'm just looking for suggestions about where to start.

Thanks.

All the while bearing in mind that Windows frequently doesn't refresh network access until rebooted.

Thanks for your help. I don't know if it's overlapping firewalls, but I turned off the windows firewall and made an immediate connection. This is not my own computer, but one that is part of work and I was the second owner. I couldn't find anything that appeared to be a firewall, but now that I know that turning off the windows one did the job, I am going to poke around. If I find something I'll let you know.

Thanks again for your time and suggestions!

I was the firewall. I disabeled the Windows version and tried the free PCTools one. I tweaked some settings, and now everything is working fine.

Thanks again for the suggestions.
