We can access a SharePoint file share from our desktop (start run, \SPserver\share).

however, it says it cannot find the network path when we try to do this same thing from a server machine....any ideas?

The Workstation service wasn't running this link will help you :


This is not good way to access it, I would rather map a drive with sharepoint url. But before that, you have to make sure that WebClient feature is installed and running on the server.

Follow the instruction below to map a drive to sharepoint.
