Hey, I'm having some problems accessing a shared external hard drive. Actually its not me thats having the problem its the other computers on my network.
When i look at the network map i can see all the computers on the network and access them all - the shared folders and devices, which i set up recently and i know work- but these computers cannot access my machine and thus cannot access the shared external.
I thought it might have been a permissions thing, but I cannot seem to add permissions for it outside of my local machine! If thats even the problem! its infuriating!
I guess i was hoping you guys could offer a possible explanation about why my computer isn't letting people access it on the network. I dont have a heap of knowledge on networks, so if ive skipped over a quick fix apologies, ive been around a bunch of formus with no luck :(
And i know there are other threads about this but the appropriate ones arent solved.
Thanks for any info guys
