PowerShell Invoke-Command gives Access Denied Error

I'm trying to run a script that lists all the printers connected to the PCs on my network. I created a Shared Folder on PC1 and am trying to connect to PC2 from PC2, using "Invoke-Command -ComputerName PC1 -FilePath \SharedFolder\SubFolder\Script" . Whenever I do this, PC2 is unable to access the shared folder, even though it has access in the Explorer. I have enabled PSRemoting on PC2. Does anyone know a fix?

    Is it safe to assume that you're running the Invoke-Command from a machine that isn't PC1 or PC2?

    If that's true you've encountered the "second hop" problem: ps-remoting-second-hop

    If, on the other hand, you're running the Invoke-Command from PC1 then there's no need for the "-ComputerName PC1" -- but you still have the "second hop" problem because you cannot use the credentials from PC1 to access the shared directory on PC1 from PC2.

    What is the path you used from PC2 in explorer? Is it "\pc1\SharedFolder\SubFolder\Script"?
