First, check if your are having a third party security software issue on both computers. Check the sharing set up of the two computers by going to the “Security tab” of the drive of the folder you want to share. Check the “User group” or the “Work Group” of the two computers, they must have the same group name.

Once all of this has been double checked. See if the computer file/drive that you want to share has “Security permissions” that is set to every one. After you have done all of this, your computer must now be able to access the other machine. If you are using an Antivirus software like AVG. Set its fire-wall rule to, “small home or office network”.

The easiest way to connect into a network is to configure the IP of your computer correctly. Access network connection properties and select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and define your own IP.

If you are not the administrator of the network, you may ask to add a host by running drivers/etc. Select host and add the network URL that will resolve your problem.
