RE: The specified Network Provider name is invalid
Alright, I am having the same problem... I am on Windows Vista Ultimate SP1.
It worked GREAT until I installed the Novell Client so I could map my schools
network drives to my account. It is weird because I can connect to my schools
networked drives just fine from 'Network' BUT! When I go to connect to my own
server or any other computer with open file sharing it wonâ€™t work. It finds
them but when I try to connect I get this message. For example my server
**Windows Server 2003**
"\\RAMSDEN-HOME is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this
network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permissions. The specified network provider is invalid."
Can someone please help me! I really am stuck here and I need my network
back up and running prompt!!!
