XP Professional, filesharing problem

Discussion in 'Windows XP Security' started by Mattias Carlsson, Aug 30, 2004.

  1. Hi everyone,

    Im at a customer of mine trying to solve a problem with
    filesharing over the local network on 3 XP Professional
    machines.
    All the computers show in the workgroup but its not
    possible to access them, after a bit of troubleshooting I
    found that in the 'local security settings' the rule
    for 'Access this computer from the network' is empty, ie.
    noone has access, I change this rule so Everyone has
    access but after rebooting its gone again and at some
    times it has cleaned itself even while the computer is
    still running..

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    I've had many problems with local filesharing due to
    software firewalls. Zonealarms free edition actually
    continued to block my access once even after it was
    uninstalled because it left a setting in the registry.
    (Old Windows 98 system) Take a look at that.

    Thanks, but there is no software firewalls active on any
    of the computers.

    Are all the users logging on with passwords.

    Must logon on with password to acces shared folders.

    Thanks, I will take a look at that, I actually believe
    they have disabled passwords on their user accounts.
