  • Hi,

    Can you successfully ping the UNC server? If the ping fails , it means that the UNC server is down, in this case, you should find the UNC server and check the running status.

    If you can successfully ping the UNC server, the port number you specify should not be 80, because the 80 port is already used by default, So, in this case, you should ask the UNC server administrator to change to the default port number 445.

  • hello,

    could you give some more details.

    1. is this just one path you are trying to connect?
    2. are both of the computers in the same domain?
    3. can you give the example line where you are trying to connect and where do you type the path (into Internet Explorer, Windows explorer or in RUN window or in CMD-prompt)
