I have a PC running Windows XP connecting to a Mac running OS X in a peer to peer network.
On the Mac is a folder named User. I can connect to this folder from the PC by mapping a network drive to the IP of the Mac and the folder name i.e. \\192.168.0.2\user
My problem is on the Mac this folder has Read Only rights. The account that I am logged on to the Mac as does have the box checked that says allow this user to Administer this computer. However, even with this option I cannot change the properties of this folder to Read & Write. That is greyed out.
As a workaround I copied the subfolder in User that I want to work in to the folder on the Mac named Shared because Shared has Read & writer permissions. But when I try to map a drive to that folder from the PC \\192.168.0.2\Shared the PC says it can't find it
So the answer to anyone of the following questions will solve my problem.
1. How can I change the attributes of the User folder to Read & Write?
2. Why can I map to the folder User but not to the folder Shared?
