Sharing files in XP Pro

By miltstatezny ·
I converted all PC's to NTFS now I can no longer share the folder " Program files" on my point to point pretend server. How do I share this folder on the local Lan. Important server based programs have their files stored in there that I need to share in-order to run the programs over the network. Without the share I can not fire up network programs from each work station

What I did so far is mark the folders inside this folder that I need to share. This works but I do not have axcess to this folder from the work stations. Ideas?

You can't share the program files by using the share tab in XP-Pro if you are the NTST file files system. If your still FAT 32 all works fine. Has anyone found a way to do this using the NTST files system. The only way I got this to work is by sharing the folders in-side programes file individually. This means clicking on each and every folder.

In you security tab of the shared folder properties add everyone or the selected users you want to have access. Select the appropriate level of access. Create the user names in the PC you are sharing with the same username and password of the users who wants to access, but theres no need you you grant everyone.
