How to Logon to Anther XP Pro Machine.

I have set up a couple of XP Pro machines, one acting as a file server /
central storage of files.

I have switched OFF simple File Sharing as I want users to be authenticated
so that certain shares can be accessed by specific people.

So I have set up the shares, Documents\Joe for Joe etc. I then set the
permissions to remove Everyone from them. I then set up a user on that PC
called Joe. The idea being that when we tried to access the share it should
ask the user to log in. However I get an 'Access Denied' message.

Can anyone tell me how I can set up the system to allow specific users to
access specific shares on the remote PC which is running XP Pro.

All machines are NEW Dells running XP Pro SP 2.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Modify the NTFS permissions on the share to allow Joe.

Thanks for the comments but I have done that, however when trying to access
the share on machine 2(Server) from Machien 1, it does not ask for a login of
any kind. I just get the Access Denied message. How can I get it to request
Joe on Machine 1 to Login so that he can access the share on Machine 2?

Any ideas would be helpful.

Thanks,

If you created the 'Joe' user account on the shared machine with an exact
match of that user name and password on his machine and the NTFS permission
is set, he should be able to access the share from his own machine without
being asked for a login.
If the match is exact, is there a real password or blank? Is a firewall
involved on either machine?

If this doesn't help, I suggest running
net use \\computername\sharename /USER:joe joepassword in a command prompt
on the Joe machine. If that fails the reported error code will be helpful
in diagnosing the problem.

Thanks for that GTS.

I think that the the user names are the same, 'Joe' but I will check just in
case the case is different. I know that both accounts are set up at present
with blank passwords.

I will check these tomorrow and post the exact error if it persists.

I will also try the command line as part of the start up.

Thanks again for the help.

GTS,

I have tried that. It will allow me to map the drive, I used the following
command line:

net use n: \\computername\sharename /USER:Joe and no password.

It allows me to map the drive to 'n' fine, however I am unable to see
anything with the map. When I click on the map itself, I then get the message:
N:\ Is not accisible
Access Denied.

Now both machines have a use, 'Joe' in that case. The user on both machines
has NO password, so that should wor, but is does not.

I then tried to connect using the Administrator password and I got the
following error.

System Error 1219 has occured
Multiple connections to a server or shared resource by the same user, using
more than one user name, are not allowed. Disconnest all previous connections
to the server or shared resource and try again..

I am at a loose end with this one as I have done this before. SHould not the
remove (Server) ask for a user name and password anyway. Is there any way of
forcing it to request a user name and password.

Thanks,

Neil

This happens when the NTFS permissions for the target folder
do not include Joe.

You must disconnect all existing shares before using an account override:
net use * /del

Your general rule should be:
- Make the share permissions "Full access for everyone".
- Adjust the NTFS permissions to suit your requirements.
- Use a password for every account.
- Have every account/password defined identically on each PC.

If you observe these rules then you will have no problems at all.

Neil,

No, the remote shouldn't ask for a log in when there are matching
accounts. Are you certain there is no firewall issue on either machine?
The fact that you were able to map the share but not access it would seem to
indicate either a firewall or NTFS permissions problem. The Windows
Firewall is enabled by default on SP2 machines. If enabled, is File and
Printer sharing checked in Exceptions?

re. the 1219 error - That's normal if a mapping exists under another user
name. After having mapped Joe, if you run
net use n: /delete (or net use * /delete) to delete that mapping, you should
be able to try again as administrator which is a good idea..

suggest you give the login "Joe" a password - I remember reading somewhere
when using network authentication while accessing other PCs requires a
password, at least that's what I did on all my home computers, before that,
they would connect and got access denied or computer is not accessible.

That's a good thought. As I understand it, and read it, a blank password is
a limitation for "remote interactive logons by network services such as
Terminal Services, Telnet, and FTP" and not a routine share, but it couldn't
hurt to see what happens.
