Accessing network drives

By jayeevans ·

I have a number of users who dial into our NT server using RAS.

Can access Exchange server for e-mail, etc, but I cannot see how to access network drives - I get unable to browse the network when I try to find them.

All 3 users have definitely got rights to access the drives on their login.

I was told that it was because Netbui needed to be installed, so I tried that - made no difference. Then told need to type in network path in Start/Run instead of browsing - again this makesno difference.

Please advise what I need to do to resolve.

Are these Drive Shared?

by niggiebro In reply to Accessing network drives

If your Drives are Shared, you may need to add other permissions to be able to access the Drives through RAS. I'll look into it and get back to you, but it sounds like the permissions are not set!

One thing you can check for is the properties for
Client for Microsoft Networks (accessible by right clicking Network Neighborhood and then properties) and make sure that the domain name
is entered there. Also check the DNS tab under
TCP/IP properties and make sure the domain name is entered there as well.
You can download email without these settings but
they are necessary to browse a network.
Hope this helps.
