Sharing issue
I want to be able to move a file across my home network (both PCs are Vista).
I have shared the destination folder with "Everyone" to be a co-owner. I do
not have passwords set up.

I can "see" the destination folder across the network and can open documents
in it, but it will not allow me to move files into it. The weird thing is, I
encountered this for the first time a couple of days ago. The folder was
shared, but I could not move a file into it. That was when I looked into
sharing and realized that I had to change permission lever to "co-owner" in
order to create documents. Once I updated the sharing, I was allowed to move
the file. However, today I am not allowed to perform the very same action; I
get "Destination Folder Access Denied, you need permission to perform this
action".

You may try to create the same username with the same password on both

Re: Sharing issue
Hi
Every one means Everyone that is on the list of allowed on the specific
computer which the Folder is on.
It does Not mean Everyone who is trying to connect to the Computer/Folder
from any location on the Network
If LAN security is Not a concern, and you are the sole user, then Switching
On the Guest account makes it a True Everyone.

Re: Sharing issue
Thanks for both suggestions but...

The guest account is turned on.

I tried setting up both PCs with identical user name and password and this
did not work either.

To re-iterate, the sharing works - I can see the folder and read the
documents in the folder across the network, but it appears to be a
permissions issue - where I am not allowed to move documents into the folder.
Also, this was working a few days ago - I was allowed to move a document
into the folder - but a setting appears to have been changed which has
resulted in lesser sharing permissions.

Re: Sharing issue
Hi
Then set the permission and security of the Guest user as Read/Write
permission.
Q: Why it changed? I do not know, can be a mistaken click, or a change
somewhere that created a chain reaction.
In my work with people many times why is important? (Big part of therapy is
the quest to why?) . Contrary to what Sci-Fi movies try to tell us,
computers are just dumb machines. Given the constrains of volunteer help
over the Internet, I rather try to solve the problem then losing time on
why.

Re: Sharing issue
I included the information that it was working previously, not to ask "why"
it no longer worked, but in an attempt to include detail that might be
pertinent or helpful (that the network had previously been successfully set
up to share across the network with the desired permission levels
(read/write) i.e. it is possible within my system.)

Guest has read/write permission (set up as co-owner in sharing) and this
still does not work. I am not aware of any other way to modify the settings
for Guest.

Thank you for the suggestion.
