access and permissions problemLocked
I have recently setup up a small network of 5 machines all using xp professional. I have given it a workgroup name and have no problems sharing files and folders between all machines. However one of the machines is to be used for accounts and the machine i’ll be using needs to access the accounts but all the rest should not be allowed to access the accounts folder. So far i have created an user account on the accounts machine with the same user name and password as mine. Then i went to the sharing and security tab for the folder and gave the user account full control access permission, however this does not seem to work. When i remove the everyone access control I am unable to access the accounts from my machine all i get is the access denied error. Any help with this issue would be much appreciated.
