It should be so easy to share a folder in a workgroup and access the contents from another computer in the workgroup. So it is driving me crazy that this isn't working. There is a scanner that sends the scan as a PDF via FTP to a Scan folder on a Windows 7 computer. The Scan folder is shared, and read/write permissions are granted to Everyone under Sharing, and Full Control for Everyone under Security. The other computers can see and open the folder, but cannot see the contents. I discovered that the PDF files are not inheriting the permissions of the parent folder. If I go in manually and replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from the folder, I can then see the PDF's from other computers. But that only works if I manually do that. It is not happening automatically. I feel like I am missing something right in front of me - I've done this hundreds of times and have never had a problem. I will gladly award the points to someone who can lead me to the answer, even if it is obvious and makes me look like an idiot!!
