Help Needed Re Setting Folder "Access Permissions" For File Sharing on Home Wireless Network

  • 1. Username and password fields gray
    Over the past few months I have seen a couple of cases where, when a PC is locked (because of a GPO), the username and password fields are grayed out. We can not login, restart or shut them down. Altiris' command line and power tools won't even work. Does anyone have an idea what causes this and how to prevent it? There is nothing in Event Viewer. Thanks.
  • 2. Fles Extracted from Iso File are Larger Than CD can Hold
    I downloaded an ISO file which was about 560 Mb but when I extracted the files with Iso Buster the files were 1.03 GB. I want to know how this can be done and how can I create a similar Iso file for the software I have. drrks
  • 3. bugs, ActiveX and registry
    Hi all, A friend's brother brought me his PC, which is royally infected. I've managed to manually remove some via file tracing using 'msconfig' and 'regedit'. I've attempted to do an on-line scan from Trend or Norton, but the remote utility reports issues with ActiveX (same on the MS Update site). He has Panda loaded on the system, but it hasn't been updated since April and now won't run. Tonight I'll try the stand-alone DOS version of Trend to do a little more cleaning, probably also Spybot. I saw the posting suggesting Stinger, so that may be my backup plan. I've done a recovery reload of XP (Home Ed), but I still have some issues. Does anyone have any other suggestions? If none of the above works, I will flush the disk and reload from scratch. One other question... is there a Registry tutorial on the KnowledgeBase or a book that goes into depth? I know enough to backup and search for entries I want to delete or modify, but some areas have absolutely no meaning to me. TIA, Keith
  • 4. XP wont start
    The best option that I found (as it happened to me as well two days ago), after hours of research, is the repair installation of XP. Dont even bother with recovery console unless you are an IT guru. >-----Original Message----- >I shutdown my comp and when i restarted it i see my comps >info and i get to the menu where i can pick to restart in >safe mode and last good configg and whatever i choose i >see the Windows XP home edition loading screen but then a >blue screen with words flashes and my comp restart help i >can't get on my comp thank you >. >

Help Needed Re Setting Folder "Access Permissions" For File Sharing on Home Wireless Network

Postby sitting » Mon, 29 Sep 2003 06:34:51 GMT

I am running an 802.11b wireless network between a desktop PC
connected by cable to a Microsoft wireless access point (which is
connected to a broadband modem) and a laptop with a Microsoft wireless
PC card. Both PCs are running Windows XP Home.

After setup, both successfully share the broadband access and a
printer and My Network Places shows both PCs and the folders and files
on each that have been designated for sharing. From the laptop I can
access the desktop, can access and share files on it, and can transfer
files and data between the two. 

However, from the desktop I can't access any of the shared folders or
files on the laptop although they are displayed and listed in My
Network Places. When I try to access a folder or file I get the
Windows Explorer error message:
"\\ [name of laptop\folder] is not
accessible. You might might not have permission to use this network
resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you
have access permissions. Not enough server storage is available to
process this command."
 I have plenty of space on each, 10GB on the desktop and 45GB on the
laptop. What "access permissions" and which "server"? 

Any explanations and suggestions? TIA

1.Need help with file sharing - home network (wireless)

Can I use Windows XP's file sharing feature to share files/printers when my 
desktop is wired to a wireless router - and my notebook (or laptop) has a 
wireless connection to the home network. (The desktop does not have a 
wireless card.)

I can connect to the Internet just fine, but after running Network Setup 
Wizard on both computers (using a Dell Memory Key) I cannot see either 
computer's shared folders.
