Sharing files: Win 2000 and Vista
I was able to do the following:
1. Disabled Firewall in NIS 2008 on Vista system.
2. This allowed Win 2000 system to access files on Vista system.
3. Re-enabled Firewall on Vista system and marked wireless network as
The Win 2000 system is wired to the router.
Vista system is wireless.
Now, on the Vista system, if I go to the network and sharing center, and
then to "View Computers and Devices",
I see the Win 2000 system listed.
If I then click on the Win 2000 system, I see:
Temp is a directory that I never intended to share.
But no way to get to the drives on the Win 2000 system.
The drives themseleves are marked for sharing, with names such as D$, K$,
etc. but those names do not seem to be shared.
If I create an alternate name for D$, such as DOther, DOther gets shared and
seen by the Vista system.
Is not there a way to cause Vista to se a list of the drives on the Win 2000
How do I make ALL files on particular Win 2000 drives shared?
