Hi,

I try to connect with my Windows 7 to an hold PC with Windows 2000 : When i contact the Windows 2000 PC i am prompted for a username and a Password (I am in a Domain with a Windows 2003 DC) I give up the logon information, but "Access denied"

I know that Windows 7 have change many thinks in shared Folder (NTLM... )

So i try to change some security parameters in relation with NTLM on my Windows 7, but no resolution...

Have you any idea ?

Have a nice day,
Yoann

when you enter the credentials, did you enter the username in the format:
domain\username

?

If both machines are joined to the same domain you shouldn't be prompted for credentials.
There are two sections to check on the actual folder share, under the sharing permissions tab and the actual security tab--make sure your user is in both.

Hi,

both PC  are in the domain, both identificaton DOMAIN\user or user don't work.

shared security and folder security are set correctly : With an XP computer i can access to the folder with the same USer account. None of my Windows 7 work for connecting to this Windows 2000.

Have a nice day,

you should be able to use domain\administrator account to gain access.  If not the use windows2000computername\administrator (where 'windows2000computername' is the computer name of your windows 2000 computer. administrator is the local administrator) and password to connect.

Check the permissions on the windows 2000 PC. make sure the account you're trying to use has access rights to the share you're attempting to connect to.

AC_NovaCommented:
which version of windows 7 is it?

Anyway try this

The solution: Registry editing for LAN manager authentication level (in Home edition this can be configured through registry)

How to do it:  
1 . Open registry editor ( Start search - regedit)
2 . Browse to  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
3.  Create a new DWORD value  with the following properties:   NAME: LmCompatibilityLevel    
                                                                                            VALUE: 1
4. Restart your PC and try the connection again...
