I have a fresh install of XP Pro on a machine I'm adding to my home network. I'll call it box2. I've set up box2 to permit full sharing with every computer on the network using these settings http://img386.imageshack.us/img386/8819/82738131ik7.gif
. This is exactly the way box1 (also XP Pro) is set up and I have full access to box1 from box2.
But box1 cannot access most folders on box2. It can access the root directory but not the Windows directory or Program Files.
It has access to "Documents and Settings" and some of the folders in it, but not to most of the folders. It has access to "All Users" & "Default User," but not to "LocalService," "NetworkService" or the user folder. Within the "All Users" folder I have access to some folders and not others.
This is the error message I get http://img172.imageshack.us/img172/6617/86054297ew4.gif
My other computers are set up like box1 and complete sharing is available between them, so I dont want to configure box2 different and have two configurations to deal with. And, of course, I dont want to change the configuration of the other machines on the network, since theyre working fine.
Why isnt box2, which I believe is configured like box1, working like box1?
