    Hi all !
    I have a small server running windows server 2008 R2.
    From my laptop I can connect to this server thru Remote Desktop connection without any problem. But when I go in My Computer, the server does not show in "network" and I can't log in when I type \\UNIKSERVER in the bar. It just says it can't find it.
    I've just re-installed windows so I don't think it's a problem with an other software.
    I'm stuck... got to access the server for work.

    Does it work if you use the server's IP address rather than its name? If so, it sounds like DNS isn't set up property.

    I've decided to re install windows again, logged and account as local account (not microsoft). Now it works fine. I don't know what was the problem.
    Thanks for your reply !!
