I have a home network with 3 computers on it all using XP Pro. 2 computers can share files between each other no problem. The third one can only share files one way from the other 2 but not to them - I get the usual warning about setting permissions ! What's wrong ? What should I re-check ?
Thx FelixTCat & Mattyc_92. I have disabled the firewall already & it makes no difference & all folders have been set to share by right clicking - share - share this folder folder already. When you try to seect the compurter from the network icon I immediatly get no permissions warning which makes me think that it is a user access or IP address problem - but can I solve it !!
Hi Felix, So if I have understood that correctly then the problem PC needs user acounts - (Admin or not?) with the same name & password as the other PC's trying to access it remotely on the network for them to gain access to file sharing with it ?
Is it the XP Pro client that is not accepting inbound access? If so, disable SFS. Then try to access the XP Pro client's shares via the browse method on any XP Home clients and you will be prompted for a username and password (the XP Pro client must have a passworded account for this to work). Setup the share shortcut as normal and then, whenever you need to access it, click on its shortcut in MNP and you will receive the prompt. While in that user session, the XP Pro share will also be accessible from the other clients' copy/move folder tree.
Hi Ade, Yes inbound from laptop on laptop not accepting by no permission being granted for access. Outbound from PC to laptop works find pushing & pulling files What's SFS - Single File Sharing - if so individual or global diable ? & what's the best way to do this ? Thx
