Trouble accessing other computers on the same network
I have a small local area network at my office. Everything is set up on a 12
port switch with ethernet cable. We have a new laptop that has Vista. It says
it is connected to the network and when you view the full map you can see the
other computers on the network but it will not let you open them! If you
click on (Right or Left click) it does absolutely nothing! When I try to
access that computer from the other computers on the network (you can see it
there) it says the network path is not found. I have disabled the firewall
on the local area connection on all these computers and have installed the
LLTP responder on all the XP computers, still can't get it to work! It
connects to the shared internet connection but that is all. Thanks for any
suggestions you can give me!

The "Network path not found" error is generally a NetBT setting problem, or a
misconfigured or overlooked personal firewall.

But since we are mentioning Windows Vista, be aware of the various Vista issues
too.

And additional possible reasons for the "Network path not found" error.
