Security Warning Opening MS Access On Intranet
Posted on 2010-09-12
Following a recent tech support incident with Microsoft's MSN Hotmail support to handle inaccessibility to my mail, I've begun having Open FIle Security warnings. These occur when I attempt to open an MS Access database on my local intranet; the database residing on another machine. The database has been successfully opening for several years in this manner, with the C:\ drive of the hosting machine shared out. After the Open File warning, Access continues to open but fails with the message - "Access acannot open the file, it is outside your intranet or resides on an untrusted site."
The MSN tech support incident did include some commands entered from START | Run. Sorry, I didn't write them down.
The Operating system environment is WinXP SP3, and Office is 2003. IE is version 7
While I've looked around in IE's Security settings, I don't see anything unusual having changed there, with intranet security still at Medium Low.
What can I try, so that I can access the database across my home network?
