Noticed in Permission for Local Disk (C Group or User Names..
Authenticated users and the Permissions are all UNticked.

All below have all ticks.. Full Perm
SYSTEM
HomeUsers(Webmain\HomeUsers)
Administrators(Webmain\Administrators)
Users(Webmain\Users)

Can you post a screenshot please? Also scroll down a bit to the bottom where the ticks are, perhaps Special is ticked?

Also:
I see you selected 40-56 bit encryption in advanced sharing, it should be 128-bit unless you have a compelling reason. Try changing that one.

HI,

Changed to 128. Special is ticked for Auth Users

That authenticated users permissions are normal. Mine is same.

------------------------------
Now, this shouldn't happen but can we try something?

On Webmain create a new admin account (doesn't need to be admin but to have max permissions..)
UserName - test, password - 1234 (get the idea? something simple ) - User Account - Create
You don't need to logon on Webmain with new account or anything else.
Lets not mess with C. Share another drive if you haven't already, don't change any permissions.
Try to enter the new account's credentials.

I can get to Users in Webmain.
You can access the 'Users' share because the NTFS permissions on C:\Users has the Everyone group set to Read and Execute, which is default.

For some reason the HomeUsers group on the NTFS permissions aren't taking effect.

Ozstar, please verify if you are using a HomeGroup network, as the permissions assigned to HomeUsers will not take effect if you're in a WorkGroup instead. See my post #76 to how to tell if you're using a HomeGroup or not.

If you're not using a HomeGroup, Ozstar, I managed to find another builtin group type that should work for remote WorkGroup users as well as HomeGroup users.


GokAy, if you can interpret the output of the Icacls command, all permissions you need to know are revealed in Ozstar's, ShareDetails.txt.

Yes Pyprohly Webmain belongs to a homegroup sharing all pics,docs,vids etc.

Network Home network

I used the HomeGroup panels..
Troubleshoot HomeGroup diags and its says..
Some HomeGroup problems are net related. We recomend troubleshoot network probs before continuing.

Okay. Forget the HomeUsers group then, I have no clue why the group's permissions aren't kicking in.

Let's try a new group--Network--and let's test it for size first by applying it to only one share: we'll use the 'WebMain-Video' share, which maps to K drive. Run the below command on WebMain, Ozstar, and see if you can connect to the 'WebMain-Video' share after.
Code:
icacls "K:/" /grant "Network:(OI)(CI)(F)"
