Looks like I spoke to soon. So I'll explain what I want to accomplish again (just to refresh everybody's mind). I have two XP Pro machines on a Linux network (running Samba). I need to setup a secure (username & password) transfer setting.
Below is what I've done:
- I created a new user account on my machine named "Testrun"
- Created a folder under C:\ named Testrun
- Under the sharing tab I set share name to: Testrun
- Under Permissions I unchecked everyone, and added "Testrun" (also giving that account full access to whatever's in that folder)
- Click OK
My problem now is that I can't access this folder over the network (From another Windows machine). I checked and I have Server running (which is needed for file sharing). I tried adding it to the "My Network Places", but it doesn't go through (I entered: \\computername\Testrun)?
