I have 3 systems. A,B,Compx all on xp. but comps A and B have an issue with Compx.
Compx has network shares I can access. I can do \\compx and get some.
But I cannot access the admin share c$ \\compx\c$ gives a login prompt, and I can't get any user/pass to work.
I looked at permissions but don't see an issue.
Nevertheless, I will describe what I see in the permissions.
In the security tab of C, I have Administrators,creator owner,everyone,bob,system,users (6 things there) "creator owner" has nothing ticked, I can't seem to change that. If I tick so they all get ticked, and click apply, 2.5min and it's completed its opration and they all untick. Though this isn't the root of the problem. Since I get the same in the share I can access.
In advanced, I see those 6 things, Administrators,creator owner,everyone,bob,system,users (6 things there) all "full control" all are "this folder, subfolders and files".. except creator owner, which is just subfolders and files only
I look at the properties for the share I can see. looks the same, except in security..advanced, double clicking any of them the boxes are all ticked but greyed. That's not the problem though since I can access that share.
So, I don't know what the problem is.
