  2. Hello Arne,

    Is the server domain member or workgroup server? How do you try to connect,
    mapping with UNC path?

  4. Hello Arne,

    You where talking about a domain, that's the reason for the question. Do
    you mean security for the share? Depends what the user should be able to
    do in that folder. I assume they should not logon to the server itself?

  5. I never talked about a domain. I can't map to the share at all.
    THey should log on to the share only. Now they can't

  6. Hello Arne,

    Can you ping the server by computername and ip address?

    How are the share permissions and the NTFS permissions on the share?

    Any firewalls enabled?

  7. The server has a firewall with 500 settings. I don't know where to start. Do
    you know what to change?
    Ping Pinging ACE [fe80::e1c3:ed32:d0b6:fded%10] from
    fe80::e1cc:9f0d:de74:c73a%10 wit
    h 32 bytes of data:
    Destination host unreachable.

  8. This may not be what you want to hear, but "workgroup" and "security" don't
    really belong in the same sentence, IMHO.

  9. Hello Arne,

    For the beginning start with disabling the firewall, to see if full connectivity
    exists.

  10. Do you have a better word for workgroup access?
    My Server 2008 is at home and it is very small risk that anyone would get
    access.

  11. Security doesn't just mean "protecting your computer from attacks from the
    Internet." It also refers to security of data within a network. Without a
    centralized account database such as you have in AD it is very difficult to
    effect this. If you don't care about this, then perhaps your subject line &
    first message were a bit misleading & I may've gone down the wrong track.
