    Unable to access location on the network

    I have shared folders on a machine on the network. When I access it in nautilus, I get "Unable to access location: Connection Refused". What's up with that?Screenshot from 2013-05-08 08:53:32.png

    Yes exact same problem here

    Can't even access my own computer from the network browser
    Even if there was some problem with other computers on the network typically you can always access your own computer from the network browser

    ??????
    Please advise

    More details, please. Your network includes a computer using (some operating system) and it has a folder which was shared using (some method -- complete details, please.)

    There are lots of ways file sharing can be blocked, including firewalls, and even router settings.

    I'm no expert. I always use the simplest possible approach -- and it always works.
