Windows 2000 Server File Sharing Problem
Posted on 2002-06-08
I've been running windows 2000 advanced server on my network for about a week (testing it out).
Originally, whenever I or someone on the network would try to connect to the default hidden share of \\server\c$ a dialogue box would pop up asking for a login/password to access the share.
NOW, that is no longer working!! It just allows everybody to access the share!!! (I prolly changed something but I have no idea what!).
i.e. ANYBODY on the network could just type \\server\c$ and would get FULL access to the c: drive of the server!!
How do I get it back to the way it used to be?
Win2k server doesnt allow me to modify the share permissions directly because it is setup by the system.
However, i must have changed the NTFS file system access rights or something. Right now, the security tab when right clicking on C: drive is set to this:
Rights = "Allow" is chckeked for everything
that's it. So I would assume that if anybody tried to access the c: drive (which is indirectly the c$ share)they would have to be an administrator... SOO, if someone from the network is trying this how are they allowd to access the c: drive? WOuldn't the login box have ot pop up first and ask them for a login? (The way it used to?).
what are the default settings that used to make this work?
please help, thanks!
