VPN, Folder password request


Recommended Posts


Desktop Server XP Pro to post SP2

Laptop Client XP Pro to post SP2

The tick has been removed from Use simple file sharing on both machines

I have managed to get a VPN connection working fine.I can see all Shared folders on the server.

My problem now is i get a win Logon password request (the User-name space is grayed out. If i take the tick out of Use Simple file sharing, the User-name box is available) when i try to open a shared folder.

I have checked the security permissions, for the folder, and all seems correct.

No matter which user-name or password i use, nothing is accepted.

Do i need to alter settings in secpol.msc

Thanks for any help with this.
