  1. Can’t seem to give new computer permissions to access host shared file


    I’ve been doing this all day long. I can’t seem to get it to work. I’ve followed several tutorials, added the user to the work group and nothing seems to work.

    When I go to the share permissions for the host file, the computer/user isn’t showing up at all.

    :)

  2. cannot access file/or permissions

    I have a file i need to run on Windows 7 Home Premium. I get the error message saying "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."

    So I right click and choose Properties to access the permissions but I cannot. In the Security tab I get a message saying, " You do not have permission to view or edit this objects permission settings.".

    Next I boot into the Windows 7 Hidden Administrator Mode - and even with this I get all the same error messages.

    Please help me as I really need to run This file.

    Can’t seem to give new computer permissions to access host shared file

    File sharing help

    On the server click Start, type Computer Management or right click start and choose Computer Management from the utility menu.

    Bring up the management console, select Shared Folders > Shares.

    Are your shares in there? If so what permissions did you give them. Permissions are given to domain users and domain groups when you setup a Windows domain. Now that doesn't mean that other systems have to be joined to the domain but might need to access by using credentials with the username "domain\username" or "domain\security group".

    If you want your home theater system to see the shared folders, you need to setup the share permissions to also include Everyone. While this is strongly not suggested in a domain environment, sometimes it is also tough to avoid. Seeing that it appears you're doing this as a home lab type of setup you should be alright.

    Can you access the server via UNC path on your laptop? Open File Explorer, in the address bar type: \\your-server-name

    If so can you see any shares? Does it ask for a password if you try to access the server and/or shares you can see? If you need your home theater system to see the folder you need to give it open access.

    To confirm share settings, right click the folder you want to share, click Properties. Click the Share tab, then click the Advanced Sharing button. Check the box to "Share this folder". Next click permissions and confirm Everyone is checked with at least Read permissions.

    If you will need more permissions then you can choose to do so here with the simpler permission options before having to dig into NTFS permissions. Hopefully read-only will get the job done for Everyone and you can select a security group or specific user or domain admin to have Change and/or Full Access permissions to the share over the network.

    Let me know if that helps. *Toast :toast:
