SOLVED Can't access Server 2008 shares

Apr 30, 2013

My win 7 64 bit pc can't see our server in network browsing or map network drives from its shares.

I can ping it by ip address and name and telnet to it.

I have turned off the firewall on both machines and turned off IP6. I also uninstalled the AV software on the PC and ran the Norton software removal tool.

If I type in \\servername I get a Network Error popup that says Windows cannot access \\servername. Running the diagnosis doesn't return any suggestions.

Both server and pc are in the "Workgroup" workgroup and both use dhcp.
