Home Premium & 2003 server...

Posted: 02-10-2008, 02:15 PM
I am trying to access shares on a 2003 server from a home premium computer.
I can ping the server by name or address, but when trying to map a drive, I
get a network path not found message.
Is there a way around this?

Have you created a user account/password for the Vista Home Premium computer
on the server? Vista Home edition computers cannot join a domain.
