I have a Windows Server 2012 (non-domain) with a folder that's shared out as TestShare.
The share permissions are
Everyone has full access, and there is a local user TestUser that has full access to the actual folder.
On GuestServer I can connect and/or map a drive to \HostServer\TestShare, specifying the username and password for TestUser.
Effective Access Report
The problem is that when I try to access the folder, I get an "access denied" message.
On the host server I can see the user connected to the share in the Sessions manager, so the password is correct and being recognised. If I use an incorrect password I don't get the "completed successfully" message, nor the 'open session'.
What else can be blocking access to the shared files, when the share seems to be set, and the folder permissions seem to be set, and the connection seems to be okay?
The network is recognised as "public", and the relevant firewall rules seem to be enabled - even disabling the firewall doesn't help.
