Re: vista pc won't access network shared folders



I found the answer, it was in the Local Security Policies in the vista
machine. I had to change it to a lower setting to accomodate the NT domain.
thanks

Yes, I get system error 5, access is denied

I am using a 164 IP because that is the IP scheme for our network LAN

In Vista computer, do net view \\serveripaddress. Do you receive a system
error?

By the way, why do you use 164 IP?

more info...
I have turned off the Firewall as we have our own.
I can access the folder structure on the primary domain controller, and
its
backup, but can see none of the file sharing servers. When I try, I am
prompted with a login box, and though I am logged onto the primary domain,
and authenticated with my administrator credentials, I put in the same
credentials in the authentication box and it tells me they are incorrect.
I have shared a folder on the Vista Pc and am able to see it from an xp
computer.

We have a network domain, all XP pro compters, though the domain

Can't map to them which is what we usually do, can't browse to them, it
asks
for a username and password but will not authenticate using good
credentials,
actually will not even authenticate using the server credentials.
I have exhaustively checked the network settings but do not know where
else
to look.
I am using our standard network dns, wins, gateway and IP in TCP/ IPV4
We will soon be moving our 300 pc's to Vista, and this is our test pc, so
I
need to get this one right before we proceed.
I was wondering if it has to do with active directory? We are planning
to
move to active directory soon as well.
