I have file/printer sharing turned on , on both and it is a private 'work network. ..and each PC can see the other but for some reason it gives me an error saying one can't access the other. The only thing that can be seen is the public folder. So on PC1 there are documents in the public folder and PC2 can see them and access them. We want both users to be able to access the files, but if any changes are made in any of those documents on either PC1 or PC2 by a user we want them reflected...and we want it so if user1 is working on a file and user2 tries to open it they can not.
Can someone please advise how to do this correctly? The easiest way. There is no home group in Windows 10 at least I can't find it we are using the latest versions. What about mapping a network drive? What would that do? Thanks
In an office setup, we have PC1 and PC2 , Windows 10 Pro. NO INTERNET CONNECTION (Our boss won't allow it)
We have a LAN cable going from the modem/router to PC1 and another to PC2.
We need to network PC1 and PC2, so that each one can see the other on the network and can share files and have read/write access. But we need to do this, without internet access.
We are installing Simply accounting and we need to make it so that when PC1 makes a change, it reflects on PC2 and vise versa.
We know it's possible, because we did it on Windows Vista with an old version of Simply accounting and everything worked fine, But we just upgraded to 2 new PC's, windows 10. The LAN cables haven't changed or been moved. All we did was replace the two PC's. So we just need to get them linked up. I know it's simple to do with Homegroup but don't you need an internet connection for that? Please reply asap. On the old systems, they appeared when we went under Network....we could see the other PC. Hoping it will more simple with Win 10. Thanks.
