Can you access the share from the workstation if you login as a Domain Admin?

file sharing

by wlehigh2 In reply to Domain Admin Login

the workstations are only on as a workgroup,not a domain. It seemes like
an overkill to have SBS 2003 to do this
but that is the OS I have to work with.
It will not let me click OK when i try to
map from the workstation to the server.

From the workstation to the server?

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to file sharing

Your original question said you're trying to go from the server to the workstation share!

If, as your original question stated, you are trying to see the share on the workstation from the server, you need to open the workstation's firewall. On the workstation, have you run the Network Setup Wizard and made sure the "File and Printer Sharing" is turned on, not just sharing the folder?

I just realized that an Admin from your organization is also asking about this. I would suggest we work on a single thread here.

You owe the thumb to NormH3. He discovered it.

All I did was find the URL to the other thread for him.
