comment Win Server Security: Why do members of a group not get access when the Group has permission?
Hmm..that's an interesting point. I have the share permissions only allowing access to the defined group...not 'everyone'. Is this a common approach? Setting all shares to everyone and control access via NTFS permissions? My problem may lie in this area.

@Zoredache: Yes, I have logged out and logged in again to the server. Note that I am doing this via RDC and not local. @John: Well, all folders have full access to ADMINISTRATORS by default and I have confirmed this. @Nic: For the screenshots, you would end up needing a few, right? This folder, the parent folder, Administrators group, etc. If this is required, I'll have to edit each screenshot to blur names, etc.

Login/logout from what? Reboot the server(ugh) or the machine I'm trying to access from(Server or Win7 or XP)?

I am using Win Server 2008. I wonder if there is any conflict between 'Permissions' and 'Sharing options'. Both are only trying to give access to the folder to Administrators and CoOwners. Note that I am accessing the WinServer2008 shared folder from the WinServer2008 machine, a Win7 machine, and an XP machine.

When I run whoami /groups, it says my ID (I am logged in as 'Administrator') is in a bunch of groups including 'Administrators'. What are you suggesting I try to verify I my credentials are correct? thanks.

comment RealVNC command-line switches
Sounds good. I wish I could direct you to a simple -pw CLI option, but it doesn't exist for RealVNC. It sounds like you have a workable solution, so that's great.

comment Win Server 2008: RDC to Win7 Pro machine not authenticating user password
alharaka, thank you again for your reply. Much appreciated. Alright, I have egg on my face here. I realized this morning that the ID we use on the local system to login is showing a friendly name like "Susan", but not the profile name which is something like "Acme Employee" and it was the "Acme Employee" that needed to be entered in the RDC connection..and not "Susan" which is shown on her login screen. Thank you very much for your insightful guidance!

We are not on a Domain and the domain field is blank. I tried 'Use Another Account' as you suggested and entered <machine name>\<userid> in the username field and I got the same result. That was a good idea though.

I just tried turning the firewall off for home/work and also for public and then I can ping the ip address, but still not the computer name.

Yes, I see that the ID is listed in both groups. Here is something I see... if I use the machine name, I get an error that says "This computer can't connect to the remote computer."..etc. If I RDC to the IP, then the login screen comes up and even though I enter the correct ID/PW, it will not connect.

Yes, the user is in the administrators group. The ID was not in the remote desktop group, so I added it there too and still can't RDC to the Win7 machine.

comment Win Server 2008: Can't ping internal machine by IP(IPv4), but can by name(IPv6)
I now have another machine on the network that I can ping if the firewall is turned off, but cannot if the firewall is on. I do have the allow RDP process enabled in the inbound rules to allow it to run. This one is clearly in the firewall settings. What other rule would block RDC?

Yes, RDP is enabled on both the server and the target machine. Although, in this situation, I am trying to RDC from the server to the Win7 target. A login screen is actually coming up, but the ID/PW is not being accepted via RDC where it is being accepted locally on the machine. I hope that helps clarify a bit.

Hi Alharaka and thanks for your reply. I'm not sure what made the pings work now, but they are working. To answer your questions, yes we are using VIPRE antivirus. How I disabled the firewall was by logging into the server via RDC, going to Windows Firewall & Adv Security->Overview->Windows firewall properties. From there, I set the firewall state to 'Off' for the Domain and Private profiles. I renabled them after testing the pings. Interestingly, looking at the Local Security Policy via secpol.msc, it says that windows firewall states are not configured.

Thank you for your reply Sam. This is odd..now it isn't timing out any longer and is returning the IP. The result you asked for is: Reply from 10.1.10.3: bytes=32 time=3ms TTL=127 Before, it was timing out. I can now ping via IP and name both. RDC still is not authenticating, but I should open a separate thread for that issue.
