I have Windows XP Pro workstations connected to a Windows 2000 domain. I have shares on the XP systems. Without domain admin-level security, users are unable to access those shares. How do I set security without giving away the farm?
Change the mode to "classic" then create a share and set permissions to determine which users can connect. See
Disable simplified sharing and password-protect a shared folder in Windows XP
for instructions on how to do so. Also, you should consider that it is not a good security practice to have shares on client workstations. These machines are used only by users, who do not always understand or are informed of security issues and who could inadvertently expose sensitive data.
