Shared Folders not visible

Mar 28, 2007
  1. I am trying to map to a shared folder on a server, but cannot. I go through the steps of mapping a drive, but when I try to expand the server, nothing shows up. So the server is visible but not the shared folders. any clues as to what might be happening?

    the system names get passed via port 137
    the actual shares are passed on ports 139,445

    make sure the system that has the data shared, does so without using a
    sharename that ends in $, eg invisibleShare$

    what version of the server are you using?
