    I'm guessing this is a workgroup scenario, if it is, can you see your friend's PC in 'My network Places'? if you can ping by IP address, have you tried tried browsing by IP address? do \\yourfriend'smachineIP address\c$ and tell us what happens. If you can browse by IP address, then it's a DNS issue.

      Since you are accesssing an administrative share on the target machine, is it configured with a user account / password that
      a) Matches the one you are using on your PC
      b) Has local admin access on the target PC

        Right, but would it explain why he's getting the 'path not found error?'

          Also, please note that A PASSWORD MUST BE CONFIGURED on the account if you are going to access the computer over the network.

            It also din't work with ip ad.

            We can both do net meeting succesfully.


            It give error message" network path not found" when i acces by ip ad or pc name.

            The pc is connected to the internet.

              Re: can't able to access

              The other two contributors are correct but you need to get to that stage first which I presume you haven't yet if you answer yes to this question:

              Do you get presented with a login dialogue box when you do a unc?

              If the answer is yes, then try accessing your PC from your friend's, have you tried that?

              Which version of Windows XP have you got? Is it Home or Pro?
              Are all the machines on the network Newly installed?
              Are there any firewall apps running?

                Re: can't able to access

                Does your friend's PC have the Windows Firewall running and, if so, is "File and Printer Sharing" checked as an exception?

                And what exactly did you mean by?

                Is you friend's PC on your local network or are you trying to connect remotely over the internet?

                      This did not specifically (for me, at least) answer where your friend's 11th PC was located in this situation, on your local network or across the internet somewhere.

                            Re: can't able to access

                            So back to basics:

                            You are trying to map \\pr-john\c$ to \\WSn as some drive letter ("L:")

                            From \\WSn, you get "network path not found"

                            Are we trying this with the "Administrator" account and does Administrator have the same password on both boxes (for testing)?

                            On WSn, logged on as Administrator, in a CMD box:
                            You can ping pr-john?

                            You can NET VIEW \\pr-john?

                            You can NET VIEW w.y.y.z -- the IP from the ping?

                            On pr-john, logged on as Administrator, in a CMD box:
                            You do a NET SHARE and you see C$?

                            Verify you have "Use simple file sharing" turned off in Explorer "Tools\Folder Options\View\Advance Settings" -- scroll down to bottom.

                            Right click on C: and select "Sharing and Security". Examine the Permissions and make sure "Everyone" has the desired privs.

                            On the NIC in Network Connections, you verify "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks" are both checked for \\pr-john?

                            The MS firewall is disabled on both machines and/or, "File and Printer Sharing" exception is checked?

                            No other firewall software (part of an AV suite or ???) is active?

                            You can NetMeeting between both machines by name, not IP?

                            And on WSn, you execute NET USE L: \\pr-john\c$ and you get ???

                            I'm hoping somewhere is this dump, we find something that doesn't work before the "NET USE L:"
                            Cheers,

                            Rick
