Re: Cannot access laptop in workgroup

Pepeto, welcome to the forum,


if you are using Access Connections you may need to change the printer and file sharing options in the advanced settings of the profile you are using. This overrides the windows settings and allows you to block sharing if you are using an insecure / open network, i.e. hotel, airport, coffee shop etc.


Hope this helps
