i have win 2000 professional. i am on a network, and when i try and access my computer from another by using the defalut share C$(which is hidden) it asks me for the password i try my network admin password that i used when i first set the machine up as administrator, and i have tried my network password as well. neither will work it says password invalid. i know i am using the correct password cause i can log on as admin and onto network both. is there a default password for the share c$??i try to edit the permissions even logged on as administrator and it says "this has been shared for administrative purposes. the share permissions and file security cannot be set" any suggestions on how i can get this password???
thanks

The OS makes admin shares and those you cannot change if you want to change the permissions you can always create a new share and modify it as you like. Now to answer the question where you have to supply a password. anytime you access a share from a different system it takes the logon from the system you are using and ask you for a password. So if yo are logged in as Bob and try to access a remote system the login is Bob and it will ask you for a pwd. Next it will look in its security databasefor bob and the pwd you provided. If it cannot find it you cannot get in so what you might have to do is on the system you try to access remotely make sure the user account is created so you would have to create a user account called Bob and pwd.
hope this helps
