I have a mostly new install of Windows 2003 Standard Edition SP2, and I'm trying to share a folder on the network. The instructions here, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324267, describe the steps I took to share the folder. It's pretty simple.
- Go into the folder properties and enable sharing.
- Make sure the correct users and groups are given permission to access the folder.
- I also unchecked "Allow inheritable permissions from parent to propagate to this object" so I could fine tune the permissions.
Unfortunately I cannot access the share over the network. It simply says, "Windows cannot find '\192.168.1.10'. Check the spelling and try again... etc."
When I try to access the share (\192.168.1.10) from the 2k3 server itself, no contents are displayed. However, when I access \127.0.0.1 everything shows up normally.
What have I done? Is there a setting somewhere that defines which address the file sharing will use to listen and is it set to localhost?
