Windows Mobile 6 (Vario III) accessing UNC paths via File Explorer
I have my Vario III connected to the home wireless setup. The Vario III can access the Internet without a problem. It can also access internal web services without problems. However, what it cant seem to do is open a UNC path via File Explorer, i.e. \\server1\share. I get path cannot be found. I've tried it with the IP address as well. i.e. \\192.168.x.y\share. Still doesn't work.
I am not even challenged for user credentials. I am an IT pro of 8 years and can swear on oath that my networking setup is sound (these are shares that I use every day from a variety of devices in and around the house).
Can someone tell me what WM6's File Explorer's "Open Path" function is actually good for? I remember being able to successfully browse network shares on a Dell Axim (PPC2005) device not to long ago.
If someone has a moment could you please see if yours works. Have come across a few people with the same problem (after Googling the problem). However, no solution found to date.
