Hi experts,

What's the proper way of settings up a windows 2000 server DC, so that Windows 7 and vista computers can access the shared folders.

1. I already setup the Shared folder "sharing and Security" permissions. (the windows 7 machines are workgroup.)
2. I read in some website that I need to change the NTLM security under Group Policy, but it didn't work.

How hard can it be!!!

    Hey there,
    you can use Microsoft Article:

    To share a folder:
    You must have be an administrator or power user.
    Create a folder on the 2000 server, right click the folder , properties, security tab, then add the users who the folder is to be shared to, and give permissions appropriate to their needs. for example: read.
    click on the sharing tab, click share this folder.
    again click permissions and you have to add the users to share also.  Normal is full control on sharing and limit by security.
    Good luck!

    Your reply didn't help, but you tried.

    I just solved this problem. The time on the server was out of sync.
