Having Trouble Sharing Folders

Postby sonypoolplr » Tue May 10, 2016 6:40 am

I am setting up a new windows 10 computer for MLServer and music and movie playback and I am having trouble getting the folders to be able to be shared or seen, by other computers on my network. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where I need to look.

Thank you.

On the windows 10 PC make sure the folder permissions have the group "Users" having full control. Share the folder with the group "Everyone" having read/write access. (At least read).

Then from the other PCs click Start/Run and type \\<<windows 10 PC name>>\<<windows 10 share name>>. e.g. \\Server\Music

This should bring up an authorization dialog asking for a username and password for the Windows 10 pc.

Enter the username in the form <<windows 10 PC name>>\<<windows 10 username>> e.g. Server\Admin
Then enter the Windows 10 user's password in the password box. Make sure "Remember" is checked off before clicking ok. That way you only have to do this once.

Return to “Whatever!”
