    Hello,

    I'm using the RTM version of Windows 7 x64 and the RTM version of Windows
    Server 2008 R2 x64. I can connect from the Windows 7 PC to the server
    admin share c$ but I can't do the reverse. I can get to a share on my
    Windows 7 PC from Windows 2008 R2 but just a general share, not my
    administrative share. I currently have not yet set up a domain and even
    after I do, this PC will not be a member.
