Windows 7: Windows 7 registered to a Domain can not acees shares on XP at home

Windows 7 registered to a Domain can not acees shares on XP at home

Hello,

I have a laptop with Windows7 from work, registered to the domain from my company.
At home I have a desktop with XP with shares on it.
When I bring the laptop home and try to access the shares on the desktop, I am asked to enter user and pass (ok, I use the admin account on that desktop), the Seven shows me the list of shares. Very good, you might say. That is so until you try to enter the shares when it pops a "network error":
"Windows cannot acess \\xp-desktop\share1
You do no have permission to access \\xp-desktop\share1. Contact your network administrator to request access."
What access?! These are full shares for the admin account used to authenticate.

I have a third machine with Seven on it, this time a personal machine, not registered to a domain, and with this one I can properly access the shares mentioned earlier.
Also, my laptop from work, can properly access shares from my work place and shares on the personal laptop with Seven on it.
So this issue happens only when trying to access shares on XP at home.

What am I missing?

I would try going onto the XP Machine, and giving everyone full control of the share you're trying to access, and see if that solves it. If it does, I would recommend then going back to the XP Machine, and replacing everyone with the specific user account from the laptop (I believe you can specify your laptop's user account and domain when "adding" someone to the list of allowed users).

If the first bit doesn't help, post back and we'll explore other avenues.

WebMattR, this is progress. I made a test shared directory with permissions for everyone and it did worked. Also it worked when I restricted the permissions to the admin user in the XP machine.
BTW, to follow your steps: you can not add a specific user account from a Domain to a machine (the XP desktop) that is not inside that domain.
You will say then what is the problem?

There is one little tiny thing I missed in the first post: on the XP machine I'm sharing whole partitions, not just directories inside partitions. Looks like Seven registered to a Domain has a problem accessing these.

Is there anyone else in your home network that needs/sees these shares? If not, then I would say simply leave them with everyone having full control. It's less than ideal, but if the risk of intrusion is minimal, you should be okay. The other option I can think of is to make them wide open shares, but hidden shares (to make a share hidden, you add a dollar sign to the end of the share name. Then, to access it, you would go to the following address from a run prompt: \\xpmachine\share1$ and you'll have a share that nobody can see).

On a different note:
when you removed "everyone" from being able to access it, did you get prompted for authenticating to the box? If so you can type in xpmachinename\administrator and access it that way.

I know this tread is probably closed but since I was looking for an answer to this exact same thing and this was the first forum I found and it was not resolved, I decided to post my final resolution.

  1. Click the Start Menu, then “Run”
  2. Type “secpol.msc”
  3. Select Local Policies
  4. Select Security Options
  5. Find Network Security: LAN Manager
  6. From the drop down list, select: “Send LM & NTLM – use NTLMv2 session security if negotiated”
You can then log in with computername\username

Thanks for posting ti3sr3v3r. If I had a nickel for every time I posted this info I'd have a few bucks by now. This link even has pictures.

The next link shows how to make adjustments in the registry to fix the same problem if someone is using Windows 7 Home premium.
