I tried searching the forum already and it could be the wording im using isnt correct so hopefully i didnt just over look something...

I have two windows 8.1 towers. both on the same network but with the same workgroup and both even on the same homegroup. everything is set to be shared on the homegroup. the HTPC can access my office computer but my office computer cant access the HTPC it says Windows cant access check the spelling..diagnose but that doesnt solve anything.

both drives are set to allow everyone permission to them as well.

the office computer has malwarebytes and avast free. using Windows firewall. the hTPC has malwarebytes and Windows Defender. I can see the HTPC in the network but again cant access it. any ideas? thanks!
