created shared folder 'taxdata'. accessed it from other computers. yes it's accessible. but when i put  permissions with eligible users and passwords, no one can access the folder from other computers. error: you don't have permission to access this  folder.. yes, it prompts for user and password. but, when variables are entered, it does not recognize any.

however, when i allow everyone, it's accessible by other computers.

perhaps the correct question to ask is: how do i configure the shared folder to allow only those users and passwords including those from other computers?
