Confused about User Accounts and Shared Folders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm getting confused about User Accounts. Are they related to a PC on the network, to a Windows login name on a PC, or something else?

    I have 3 PCs in my study, and I would like to be able to share a WHS folder with all of them. What do I need to do?

  • You need to use the same username and password on all of the client PC's. In addition you should create a user with that username AND paswword on your WHS (and assign rights to the folders this user should have be able to access).

    Please note that sometimes the displayed username on the client may differ from the actual logon name. Pleas check out this FAQ for more details. Also please read the Technical Brief User Accounts and Shared Folders. This an more helpful stuff can be found overhere
