Windows XP Simple File Sharing & Novell Workstation Manager
Posted on 2004-10-27
OK, here's a little brain-teaser for those who thinks he already knows this subject inside & out.
Roaming Profile is enabled on the Novell 6.0 server. The client has the Novell Client 4.9sp1 installed with the Novell Workstation Manager making this "roaming" feature possible on Windows XP.
To turn off Windows XP SIMPLE FILE SHARING for good which is turned on by default everytime a logoff is made by a Novell Roaming Profile User Account. And Yes, it is a workgroup environment (non-domain) where SFS is turned on by default.
Why am I trying to turn Simple File Sharing off?
Since it prevents you from connecting to the workstation's admin share remotely. Such as \\computername\c$
So any "experts" out there who can offer solid advice???
