xp corporate: sharing problem

I have no problem accomplishing the following on NT or 2000 pro., but XP?


Here we go: when I leave simple file sharing and switch to classic I loose the ability to access the shared drives on that computer from another peer. All accounts are set up as w2k pro or NT. Permissions granted to the account. Administrator members. Is there a setting I am missing?? The drives are FAT32.

Without simple file sharing, you have to authenticate to the XP machine to access shares. This means that a user on a 9x box must have an account named identically to their 9x username, and then they must enter the password to the xp account when prompted. 2K/XP offers you the ability to connect with any username, so they don't need to be named the same, necessarily.

No. The accounts passwords and usernames are all set up correctly. It only happens on the xp machine using the "classic" sharing, and "everyone" removed. All is the same as the 2k machine and it handles fine. The 2k machine everyone is removed from the share, users (peers) "authenticate" to it.

Make sure you have NetBIOS enabled over TCP/IP in XP. That's about the only thing I can think of offhand.

you need to edit your policies. go to control panel/ administrative tools/ local security policy. in the left hand side expand local policies and click user rights assignment. the policy you want to edit is called access this computer from the network. also verify that server and workstation services are started. you can do this from computer maneagement/services. also check computer management/ local users and groups/groups and see if those users are added to remote desktop users. hope that helps

thanks lactic and Todd.

Lactic: What do you mean exactly by "over". Before, on top of?

Thanks

Todd: yea, it looks like a setting problem. Something that is either enabled initially in w2k or not in there at all.

NetBIOS over TCP/IP = on TCP/IP = through TCP/IP etc. etc. I don't usually go and check the exact wording of these things =) I'd never get any posts posted if I did!

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
