  • Hi smithassoc,

    Thank you for your question.

    By my understanding, DARRYL-PC is a computer name, if that, we could check if other PCs could access shared folder on computer DARRYL-PC, we could make sure we could ping to DARRYL-PC without any problems(including DNS resolution), then check if we could access shard folder.

    If just not access PC for your computer, we could disable firewall on your PC to check if the issue persist.

    If there are any questions regarding this issue, please be free to let me know.

    Best Regard,
