Guest kombucha Posted January 12, 2007 Share Posted January 12, 2007 I'm trying to network my Ubuntu Edgy PC with my Windows XP Pro machine, and things aren't going too well. First off, I've had them networked successfully at times, so it is certainly possible. I am also having precisely the same problems trying to network any computer to this XP rig, so it is the XP machine at fault.Here's what it's doing.For some reason, it is automatically blanking the "Access this computer from the network" setting in the Local Security Policy. With every restart, that key is completely erased. Thus, when I try to access a shared file or printer, I am denied permission. I can go downstairs and add users back in (although I just learned "Everyone" should work) but that is incredibly tedious for a machine that is shut down and restarted so frequently.I have no idea what could be doing this. I've set every other security setting as lenient as possible, because I'm not at all concerned about security on that computer. I believe there are some McAfee products on it, but unless those would clear it by default, I doubt they are responsible. The XP install was done only a few months ago, and I'm not sure when this problem started.Any ideas as to who the culprit might be or how I can prevent this setting from changing?And will "Everyone" work for literally everyone?Thanks, and let me know if there is any other information I can provide.
