My issue: No computer on the network can do a UNC file share to the Windows 8 laptop. No computer on the network can even PING the windows 8 laptop. Windows 8 can ping and UNC file share to all computers.
Here's my network setup:
Windows 2008 Foundation running as a DC. Three Windows 7 PCs in the domain. One Windows 8 laptop in a workgroup and wireless (and sometimes on the wire).
All computers are on the same subnet and have the same DNS addresses.
Windows 8 laptop: NO Firewall. I have it stopped/disabled in Services. Windows 8 is on a private network. File/Print Sharing is enabled. (for the time being)... No AV software or any 3rd party firewall or such installed.
What do you think could be causing the issue? Usually this would be a simple firewall issue, but since my firewall is off and disabled, but the problem still persists - I can't think of anything else to check on.
