We have a networked computer on a different subnet (192.168.100., where as I am on a 10.100 ip address). The target computer is not bound to a domain, unlike our 10.* computers which our bound to
ourdomain. I am able to browse, with Windows Explorer, any computer bound to the domain. However, I am unable to do so with the target computer that is not.
A colleague added his username and password to the target computer, and is able to browse to it just fine (i.e., if his login is normally
\ourdomain\username, he created a local account on the target computer that is just named
username, and set it's password to be identical). I attempted the same trick, but still am unable to browse to the network location.
The computer is most certainly reachable - I can remote-desktop to it just fine. But I'd like to be able to browse to it with Windows Explorer, e.g.
\\target\d$\. Any idea what must be done?
My computer is Windows 7 32bit, target is Windows 2008R2. My collegue (who has it working), is also on Windows 7, but 64bit.
