Hello and thank you for choosing JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

The other computers are detecting \\Host-pc correct?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Host-pc can be seen under Networks on all computers but cannot open it to view shared folders.

At the top bar where it says \\Host-pc does anything happen if you do \\Host-pc\c$ ?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Host-pc\c$ yields check spelling. \\Host-pc yields "You might not have permission to use this network resource, contact admin for access permissions". I found one workstation on a wifi that can see shared folders on \\Host-pc.

Could you open the control panel and go to the Advanced Sharing settings for me so I can verify some information?
