I have a Win7 box acting as a file server, and have a folder containing videos that I want the WDTV to access.
The WDTV can log in to the Win7 box using my credentials, and see the entire collection of all my data.
I don’t want to give the WDTV my name and password for the whole machine, I want the WDTV access limited to the just “Video” folder.
So I created a new user on the Win7 machine: “WDTV”, password=password.
I shared the Video folder as “Videos” granting user “WDTV” full R/W access.
I verified that other PCs can see the “Videos” folder on the network, but cannot access it (because they don’t have the correct credentials for that share)
I cleared the login info on the WDTV, and supplied it with the new user “WDTV” and “password”.
The WDTV can log in now, and sees the “User” folder that Win7 created for the new user, but it cannot see the shared “Video” folder, which it should have access to.
I triple-checked all the account credentials, no problems. (And since the WDTV can see the user folders, that’s verified)
What is going wrong?
