Network Access - Easy
Posted on 2002-07-13
Hi, I recently set up a network in my home.
My computer is connected to a cable modem and also connected to the uplink port of a hub.
I have two other computers connected to the hub. The other computers have access to the Internet and to each other's files as long as file sharing is granted.
My question is, how do I make it so that I do not have to share the entire C drive for one to have access to the other computer?
All my computers belong to the same workgroup so if I create the EXACT same user names on all three computers, shouldn't I be able to access the other computers without having to share the entire C drive?
When I go to Network Places and try and connect into another computer, I am prompted to logon as "ComputerName\Guest" isn't there a way to log on as the other users that I created on that computer?
Am I confusing you people? If so, I'm sorry, I will rewrite everything if needed.
