Win2K on a LAN Anonymous 17/01/13(Fri)19:02 No. 22430 ID: 1ddc06

File 148433057018.jpg - (150.33KB , 1280x960 , sample05.jpg )

I have to retype this because of an error :(

I have made a Win2K virtual machine to run as a retro PC game host on a LAN... because it's half the size of XP, that's why!

Okay, I created a shared folder called "test share", but when I try to access it from other machines (XP and 7) the folder is visible but I get the "x is not accessible, you might not have permissions etc" error. I have enabled the Guest account in Advanced User Management, and there are no firewalls involved, but I can't seem to recall what else involved here because it's been so fucking long since I last did this! And this is the point where I need /halp/.

Op here... nvm, I found it.

Turns out that I had to add Guest to the permissions list directly, even after enabling it. I seem to recall that it was supposed to do that automatically (which may or may not be a wise idea), but doing this one folder at a time could easily become an annoyance, albeit an annoyance that I'm willing to handle.

Turn off simple file sharing, which makes you use usernames & passwords to connect to shares. So long as the account you login with on each system uses the same name & password you won't have to bother with typing anything. Otherwise you type the name & password and you're in.

7 also needs to be switched back to 40/56-bit encryption vs. 128-bit. You'll also want to disable homegroup but since you have XP hopefully you've already done that.

Also XP and 7 need to be at least Pro, the Home versions can only network with other home versions. 2000 and earlier only had "pro" networking, Home was an abortion created for XP.

There's two sets of permissions, the share permissions, which control who can access the share, and the file permissions, which control who can access the files. If you had added guest to the share permissions you would need to still add guest to the file permissions, otherwise it would be able to connect but not actually read any files.

As far as file permissions go you can enable inheritable permissions on child objects, which means you set the permissions on test share, then set all the items in test share to inheritable, and they all use the same permissions set in one spot (test share).
