Cannot access shared folders from remote machines

    Question

  • Hi, I installed the WHS. Then ran the companion cd on my two other machines. Laptop running XP and desktop running Vista. I cannot seem to access the shared folders from the console on either machine even with full access rights granted to both machines. Please hellp. What did I do wrong?

  • When you say you gave full access rights - how did you do that?

     

    did you use the WHS Console and create a WHS user account with the same name and password as the one you were using on the XP and Vista machines?

  • I created the accounts with the console, but I forgot to make sure the passwords matched. Everything is working now. Thanks.

     

    Granted full read/write access with the console.
