Remote access share?



Hey Guys.
First things first. Thank you far a wonderful site ful of inspiration. I have a little problem with the sharing of my files on our local network. I have read a lot of posts about this, and I have tried everything there. My problem is that I can ad a password to a folder after disabeling "simple file sharing", but then nobody can read these files from any other computer. How do they log on to my PC, and when will it ask for their password?

I hope you can and will be kind to help me here.

If the clients are Windows 2000/XP it will prompt you for a username and password when you open the share. In Windows 95/98 clients, you need to enter a valid username and password into the Client For Microsoft Networks login screen.



But what do they need to use the account that I created? It seems that eventhough I created their usernames with password, when they try to log on they just get the message they aren't allowed on that space or whatever. How do I set up remote access? (just in case I messed something up)

If on Windows 2000/XP:

Open the share and enter the password at the prompt.

If on Windows 95/98:

When the comptuer boots up enter the username and password into thje Client For Microsoft Networks logon box (the one that coems up before you get to the desktop).

That is where you put the username and password for the account. If you enter the user and password wrong, improperly, or not at all, you will get the "access denied" message.
