Access is Denied. I cannot logon to a Windows 2000 Server in a Workgroup
Posted on 2004-10-07
In a workgroup environment, My windows 2000 client cannot connect to the share directory of the Windows 2000 server . When I double-click the share folder, it prompts "access is denied".
I figure it is probably because the client computer is connecting as the client-user@client-computer. How do you make the client to connect as server-user@server_computer instead? There is no prompt for login and password but an immediate prompt of "Access is Denied."
I have tried to map the drive and user using a different user name and password(which are the server's), the result is OK.
Under XP, I solved this problem by adding an entry under "control Panel" -> "Users" -> "Manage My Passwords"
Your help is really appreciated,
