Access Store Over Network

B

ben

Hey Everyone,

I have a store defined on a remote computer on my network. When I use
explorer and navigate to that computer I can see the store (I have a couple
defined, the default, a new one, and a folder in the new store with a
folder).

Can I, or is it possible with this release to view the contents of the store
over the network? Everytime I try and click on the folder through explorer I
get the following message: "\\dev\defStoreFolder is not acessible. You might
not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administartor
of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied."

I have full admin to the machine...am I missing something somewhere? Thanks!

Hi Ben,

This should not happen. Only administrators have remote access to the root
share (by default). If you are an admin in the machine that you are
connecting to, you should have connectivity. We are trying this out on our
Beta2 bits in the making and get back to you.

thanks,
Simon

Ben,

Could you please write in a bit more about your setup? What is running the
source machine and the remote machine?

thanks,

Simon,
We have tried it in a couple of situations, all machines running xp sp2, all
have winfs beta 1 installed. All have shared the default store, and have
created a new store and shared it also. All report:

"\\machinename\store folder is not accessible. You might not have
permission to use this netowrk resource. Contact the administartor of this
server to find out if you have access permissions. Access is denied."

All machines we are administrators on, with other folders shared and fully
accessible though explorer. The machine combinations we have tried are:

1. Between two xp2 machines, one on our domain, one off the domain
2. Two tablet pc's, one on the domain, one not.
3. A regular pc and a tablet, both on the domain
4. A tablet on the domain, and a pc off the domain

Each instance reports the same message as above. McAfee enterprise 7.1 is
running on all of the machines along with Microsoft anti-spyware/Windows
Defender. We have vs2005 installed on a couple of the machines also, but not
all.

If there is anything else I can add please let me know. Thanks again.

-ben

Ben,

Couple of our security QA folks are on training. This is being
investigated - I'll get back to you soon.

thanks,
