Shared folders
Hello, I have a shared folder (e.g. MyFolder) on a Win XP SP2 computer (e.g. MyPC) with share permission for 'Everyone' having full control and security permission for 'Users' and 'Administrator' of the computer (MyPC). When I try to access the shared (MyFolder) from another computer I get the following message \MyPC\MyFolder is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access denied I wonder why I am not getting the login prompt for user name and password ??? When I type \MyPCc$ I get a the login prompt. but when I type \MyPCMyFolder I get the above mentioned error. Please help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I would try to see if I can connect to the server itself by \\MyPC and see all the shares on the system that you are allowed to see. If you see the MyFolder share then I would look at the permissions.

    You may try granting everyone NTFS permissions and work backwards from there.
