This maybe caused by:
-The account has no permission
Do you know what I can do? Do you now how I can get the info like IP address and the rest for my SGN2 so I can register it with network sharing on my pc, for that maybe the problem.
Thanks for your help!
Those particular shares are considered administrative shares
and not normally used [or seen] by end users. e.g. C$ is a share that gives access to the root of the C: drive and is only accessible to users/services that are a part of the Administrative Group and the IPC$ share is used with temporary connections between clients and servers.
On a Windows network, those shares would not be advertised because they are hidden; that is what the "$" at the end of the share name does. Pretty much every other operating system will expose these shares however. If you are interested, MS has a KB article on the subject http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314984
In short, you don't need to worry about them.
