Access to shared folders


P

Peter

Cannot access shared folders on Win2K Pro machine.
Small office, two computers, one new XP (old 98 did same)
and Win2K Pro workstation. Have set users/passwords and
permissions (both share & NTFS partition permissions) same.
Even "administrator" on both machines, I get "Access
denied". Can access shares on new machine from Win2K WS.
All networking protocols set OK.

If ....

1. the Workgroup names match,
2. user accounts & passwords on both machines match,
3. shares are created with proper permissions
4. TCP/IP settings are compatible
5. Personal Firewall is not used
6. is physically cabled properly & no bad cables
7....and you are not using "wireless" networking

....then it should work. I can't think of anything else.

I have doing this for years, mapped drives and shares of
hundreds of machines, should be a no brainer, but this one
has me baffled.

Verify that you can ping the W2K machine by IP address and name from the XP Pro
machine and vice versa.

As a test, temporarily enable the guest account on the W2K machine to see if that
allows access. If it does it is a permission/credentials issue of some sort.

Try access as in \\computername\sharename or \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\sharename where you
enter the actual IP address of the W2K computer.

If all that fails, run secpol.msc on the W2K machine and go to security setting/local
policies/security options. Find the two options for digitally sign communications
always and set them "disabled". For lan manager authentication level, set it to
"send ntlmv2 responses only" if it is set to "send ntlmv2 responses, refuse lm and
ntlm" . --- Steve
