Networking - shared folders visible but inaccessible

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a laptop on Vista.32, and a desktop on 7.64 - I can get them to talk to each other to an extent but not entirely. They can access each others' default shared folders, but any that I have shared (an entire drive on the PC) are visible but inaccessible.

Password protected sharing is off on both systems.
I have tried disabling windows firewall, no change.




Please help frown.gif I'm sure it's a simple setting I've missed.

check the security acl as well in properties, make sure the user account you are logging on with has ntfs permissions to the share

Thanks man - this was exactly the problem. Sorted it out just before I read your message actually by pure chance - I read this..

Just have a look at the security. Add Everyone and give "everyone" full access. Everyone should be in the share as well as the security.


on here http://en.kioskea.net/forum/affich-70848-cannot-access-shared-folders-remotely which I found through a random google search.


Lesson learned!
