    Default Network with a switch

    Trying to connect 2 WIN10 computers together with a switch.
    Set static IP on both
    Same Subnet Mask
    File Sharing On

    Computer 1 connects to Computer 2
    Computer 2 does not connect to Computer 1

    One word: Firewall. Verify private or public network. PING the machine in question.

    When all else fails, I search Microsoft.

    Good luck

    Permissions are not set right. You may also have missed a permission in the file sharing settings on the directory you want to share. Verify the network group name is the same on both machines.
