  1. Surface Pro 4 won't allow any network PC's access to its shared folders


    I have shared some folders on my Surface Pro 4. While I can "see" the Surface from other networked PC's, I am unable to access anything on it. I get a dialog for Enter Network Credentials on the other PC's. I am the owner of both the surface and a desktop so I use the same login id and password on both, but the Surface always gives The user name or password is incorrect. I have spent hours making sure that Windows is fully up to date and that all the network file sharing settings are correct, with password requirement turned off, no matter. I have tried network reset, no difference. I have restored my surface using a disk image to about 7 months go and done all the Windows updates, no difference. I reset the router, reconnected all network cables. On the other hand, the surface can access shared folders on my desktop OK. A third PC on the network also cannot get to the Surface shared folder. My desktop can access shared folders on the non-Surface PC OK. All PC's have Windows 10 (surface and desktop have pro, both on win version 1903) and use Windows Defender and Malwarebytes pro, no other virus software. All PC's have the same workgroup name, network set to private. Why cannot I access the shared folders on the Surface????

    Any help appreciated. Thanks,

    :)

    Hi again

    One step closer

    Now is it possible to open HT-PC shared folders in Networklist on the HT-PC.
    The HT-PC is visible on the other computer but not accessible

    I got same error message on other computer in network when trying to access shared HT-PC folders

    Problem found
    The remote device or resource won´t accept the connection

    "The divice or resource (HT-PC) is not set up to accept connections om port "The File and printer sharing (SMB)".

    Surface Pro 4 won't allow any network PC's access to its shared folders

    ?? How do I PW protect Folders in windows

    hmmm?
    Sharing files and folders overview You can share the files and folders stored on your computer, on a network, and on the Web. The method you choose depends on whom you want to share files with, and what computer they will use to access the files.

    When you share files or folders, they are not as protected as they are when you do not share them. People with access to your computer or your network might be able to read, copy, or change files that are in a shared folder. You should always be aware that the files and folders that you share are available to other people and be sure to monitor your shared files and folders on a regular basis.

    Important

    If your computer is not joined to a domain, you can use the Network Setup Wizard to automatically turn file and printer sharing on or off. To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Setup Wizard.
    If you both use the same computer

    You can put the files you want to share in the Shared Documents folder. Files stored in the Shared Documents folder or its subfolders are always available to other users on your computer.

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, the Shared Documents, Shared Pictures, and Shared Music folders are not available.
    If both computers are on the same network

    You can share a folder or drive on your computer with others on the network. You can also control whether the files in the shared folder can be modified by other users.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    Note

    If you are connected to a network domain, you will need to set the Access control for the folder or drive after sharing it. For more information, go to To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions.
    If you want to share your files online

    You can publish pictures and documents on the Web using the Web Publishing Wizard. The files will be stored in a private, online folder that you manage.

    Step-by-step procedure

    If you don't want others to access your files

    You can prevent other users from accessing your folders and the files they contain. When your computer is connected to a domain, this is called setting permissions for your file or folder. When your computer is connected to a workgroup, this is called making your folders private.

    If your computer is connected to a network domain, use this procedure:

    Step-by-step procedure
    If your computer is connected to a workgroup, use this procedure:
