Windows 8, unable to access NAs shares

Q

I have a QNAP NAS TS-212, I can see the shares on Windows 7 machine, however, I cannot see the same share from Windows 8 Machine.

\192.168.1.6

gives me the below error message.

\192.168.1.6 is not accessible. you might not have permission to use this network resource. contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The account is not authorized to log in from this station.

The interesting part is that I do not know where the message is being generated from . I can see the same shares and drive form Windows 7 machine using the same login id. I have even disabled the Windows 8 firewall to test. It definitely sounds like a Windows 8 issue.

Suggest you to turn on the network discovery and try to perform the following trouble shooting steps and check

When you try to access a Windows XP-based network computer, you receive an error message that resembles the following:

xxxxxxx is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Access is denied.

Note In this error message, xxxxx is the IP address or the computer name of the Windows XP-based computer.

You may experience this issue when you use the IP address or the computer name to access a shared folder that is stored on the Windows XP-based computer. You may also experience this issue when you use My Network Places to access a shared folder in this situation.

This issue can occur if the Windows XP-based computer to which you are trying to connect is configured to restrict access over anonymous connections.
