WIN7 Home cannot access WIN7 Pro shares
i have a network with mostly WIN7 Home computers and one WIN7 Pro computer. we share files between all the computers, and all the shares work in both directions with one exception -- none of the Home computers can access the shares on the Pro computer. all the sharing options are identical on all machines, and all the user names/passwords match up. from a Home computer when you open "network" in windows explorer, you can see the Pro computer listed -- but when you go to open it, you get a "cannot access \\computername" error. and again, from the Pro computer, you can open shares on all the Home computers fine. it's just the Home-access-to-Pro share that doesn't work.
and here's what i find very odd -- you can't even PING the Pro computer. even with the firewall and anti-virus on the Pro computer turned completely off. wouldn't that seem to indicate a problem with the router?
