Current set up:
Win 7 Box(workstation)
Win XP Box(server)
I am doing web development on the 7 box, accessing the wwwroot over the network through a mapped drive. File access is slow. Since I am accessing the files from the 7 box more ofter then the xp box, I would like to move the wwwroot over to the 7 box, and have the web server access through a mapped drive(currently the other way around)
I googled, and tried to follow the instruction here: Share Files and Printers between Windows 7 and XP - How-To Geek
I can't get it to work.
I have shared d:\intetpub\wwwroot as wwwroot on the 7 box.
I have tried to access from the xp machine as \\win7name\wwwroot but it can't find it.
I do not know how to add the xp user to the 7 box.
The 7 box will be connecting to a public vpn and I need the file share permissions to be very tight. The only thing I want shared is d:\intetpub\wwwroot and it should require a (strong) password.
I have been working on this for quite a while and can't get it to work. Please help.
