  • Question

  • Ladies, Gents...Hope the day finds you well.

    A little advice if you please?

    Small Office - Me & Three Computers - All Running Windows 10 PRO. 

    From any computer you can see all three computers in the Network Window.

    From Computer A I can get into Computer B or Computer C. From Computer B I can get into Computer C. From Computer C I can get into Computer B.

    From Computer B and Computer C I can ping Computer A with NO Data loss. From neither Computer B or Computer C can I access Computer A. I have gone over "settings" for two days. Any advice would be deeply appreciated.

  • Hi DaCrab,

    There are a few things I would recommend trying first. Please run through these steps on the machine you are unable to access over the network.

    1. If you go into Network and Sharing Center and then Advanced sharing settings, can you please confirm your current profile has "File and printer sharing" set to "Turn on file and printer sharing".


    2. Disable your antivirus and firewall, then test again.

    Hopefully this helps,

  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for posting in our forum!

     

    As I understand, you question is about three computers in a LAN, and the computer A is not connecting with B and C. If I misunderstand, please let me know.

    Based on my knowledge, you can turn on the network discovery.

    1.       Open the “Control panel”

    2.       Open “Networking and Sharing Center”

    3.       Open “Advanced sharing setting”

    4.       Extend “Domain” and select “Turn on network discovery”.
