Hello,

I have Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Xp Professional on other computer. I have created a Shared folders on both computers and set the permissions as full control for Everyone. Both the Server and Workstation are in the same WORKGROUP. I connected from Win Xp Pro to Win Server 2003 R2 without any problem but when I try to access Win Server 2003's shared folder I get an error message -

"You might not have permission to use this network Resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permission."

The network path was not found.

I m unable to browse any remote folder. Please help me and Reply

Thanks

    There are generally 2 possible reasons for a failure to connect (assuming there are no connectivity issues) 1. The server does not know who you are. Does the Server 2003 computer have an account that has the same name and password as your XP PRO login? This account MUST have a password or connection will be refused. 2. The account does not have sufficient privelages. That means that the share permissions and the folders NTFS permissions must both allow what you need to do. Remember that NTFS permissions are by default inherited from the parent folder.
