    Here's my problem. I'm on a college network, and I've got some, well lets just say, 100% legal educational files ;) shared out on the campus network using SMB. I set up the shares with SharePoints and allowed Windows guests. The permissions I used on share points was to allow me, the admin, to do everything, and everyone else to just be able to read. Unfortunatley, the permissions aren't working. On my roommate's XP computer, I connected to mine. I was unable to delete directories, however, I could go in and delete individual files-bad. Is there any way to make sure they're 100% read only? Thanks

    Man, I can't even figure out how to allow my friends to get INTO my system. Last year, my friends couldn't see me on the network, although I could see them. And now, they can see me, but when they click on my name on the network, it asks for a password......and I know I didn't set one. I even tried my system admin password, and nuthin. :(

    Depending on what systems I use I get the same problem and have never been able to figure out the solution to this. If anyone knows I would love to hear it.

    You guys need to setup a new ID on your Mac for all the Windows users to login to. Then, you need to set file permissions on the files and fodlers you want to share with them, right click each file and go to Get Info. Then, you need to enable Windows Sharing from the Sharing prefs pane. Let me know how you get on.

    Sorry I guess I wasnt specific enough. I meant for people who were trying to connect to my Windows box from either a Mac or from another PC.
