Network / Sharing :: Setting User Permissions For Program File
Sep 15, 2014
I have two networked PCs. On PC1, I have a program file (.exe) that I want PC2 to be able to access, open and use, but not copy or move from it's location. What would be the best permission settings to adjust on PC1 to protect the file?
Two user accounts, both administrator level. I have a file in my documents that my wife's account can READ but cannot SAVE. I've gone in through User Accounts and given her account full permissions (full control with all the boxes checked), but it always reverts back to her not being able to save any file in my directory.
FWIW, I have all accounts on a separate D: drive. Only windows 8 and programs are on C:.
Also, Read only status. I see the dot (not a check) when I select properties from "my documents". I remove the dot, task window comes up and all the file names whiz by. Then, I look and ... again, the dot is present.
What is the purpose of the dot vs the check mark. They seem to have the identical effect on sub-directories and files within sub-directories.
I need configuring file history. I want to have it store files on a shared folder in a local hard rive but I want that folder to be inaccessible to other computers on my home network.
Now its fairly easy to set up a shared folder on a local drive and store file history there but the problem is that other computers can see all my files. I tweaked the sharing permissions on my folder so I removed the 'Everyone' user and put in my user name (which is an admin) and set the permissions to full control. Despite setting the permissions to only my user account, other computers are still able to open the shared file history folder and view and edit its contents.
I can't disable file sharing all together because then it would defeat the purpose of what I am trying to do and also I have another computer on my network store its files on my computer through file history.
I can't create a simple text file and place it on my C: drive in Win 8.1 - says that I don't have permission. The properties of the drive show that I do - full control, every class of user. Am I missing something really simple?
Since I've got windows 8 nobody was able to connect to me via hamachi, though it works when two others who have windows 8 connect to each other, so i was looking for what was different, and apparently it doesnt let through any data when it's set to "public network".
The problem here is that usually you change it by clicking on the network symbol, right-clicking your network and turn sharing on or off, but hamachi makes up another network which isn't listed in the primary interface. I've tried many things already and I'm kind of looking for a direct cmd-Command which allows me to change it quickly.
So, basically, I try to change a network-setting from public to private without using the "normal way to do it".
I recently updated two of my computers to Windows 8.1 and One thing that seems to be a public nuisance is having to use a Microsoft Account to have a syncing onedrive folder. This aside I have been trying to get File/Printer Sharing working between a file server and a client.
With my previous W7 setup I would create custom groups for access to certain file sets and it would all go off without a hitch, the same is true with Windows 8.1 and local accounts. The issue comes in when I try to link a MS account to said local account, at this point it seems to ignore the group permissions. Below is a diagram of the setup and the expected/actual results.
Code: = Windows 8.1 File Server =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group- Give Administrators Read-Write permission and Security on the relevant share and files= Windows 8.1 Client =- Added localuser test1- Added user to administrators group- Link test1 to MSAccount- Verified user is still part of administrators group
With this setup, if I try to write a file to the share in question, I get an access denied, but if I instead explicitly give test1 Read-Write access to the share then the user can write files as expected. If I unlink the MSAccount from the localaccount then the share works as expected with out the user-explicit permissions. Finally, after I have tested the localaccount is working, if I link the accounts back to the Microsoft Account it once again stops working. It seems like MS screwed the pooch on this one and completely broke it's own group policy permission compatibility.
I am trying to set up for media streaming from my PC to my Sony Blu-Ray player using the DNLA. I have a good network connection and have set up all permissions with Homeshare. I get everything done and when I go into Media Player and click on the Stream tab to turn on media streaming nothing happens. Also on my Blu-Ray player there is a DLNA server tab should show up but it does not.
I have strange issue with Windows 8.1 x64 Pro with Media Center. Since it was upgraded from 8, there have been issues with Software Store. Despite internet connection working fine with Firefox and other applications, Store would not connect to the internet. After long investigation I found out that Proxy server setting in Control Panel -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings must be disabled in order to get Store working again. For some reason proxy server only stays disabled for the current session, which means when the windows is rebooted it comes back enabled again. My question is how to make it stay permanently disabled, as I don't use any proxy.
I've got a Lenovo all-in-one 64 bit PC. When I click on Change PC Settings in the Settings charm the 'Wireless' option is missing. It appears exactly as expected on my laptop - also a 64bit windows 8 machine.
(My bluetooth mouse and keyboard are working as is my wireless LAN connection, so it's clearly working but I can't change anything).
I set up my administrator account and standard user account. Both are Live. Alienware Laptop. On the standard account, users can not even run a game (original Fable that requires disk to start up) without it asking for my password. Which is not always convenient seeing as how I work and all. How do I allow standard users to run programs but not make changes to the computer? So far I have not seen any threads about this. I've been going around in circles in control panel searching for anything that would allow me to grant permission permanently but so far I have found nothing.
So i downloaded LogMeIn Hamachi and accidentally put it onto private network, so now everytime the program is working i cannot connect to the internet outside of the hamachi connections. Now i can switch my Wi-fi connection to to public/private by clicking networks, right clicing the one i want to change and clicking turn sharing on/off. But hamachi is not in this list, it is in the network and sharing network centre, were i cannot find how to switch it to public.
The Windows 8 starts it seems that i loose the permissions to the temp folder. As a result some applications using that folder to launch (for example Google drive) fail giving me an error. Another example are some installation files not starting because the temp folder cannot be used.
So, i have always to go to temp folder and manually set the permissions to have all working.
I'm having trouble with the environment configuration on my new Windows 8 machine, I don't remember running into problems like this on 7, but I can't seem to find much useful online..
I have 4 dll files that need to go into the WindowsSystem32 folder in order for one of our applications to run. This is done through an Advanced Installer package I created, which will not allow the installation unless the user has administrative rights (it deals with Windows Services as well). One of the steps is to copy these 4 dll files, which it apparently does without any errors.
Herein lies the problem.. Technically, the files do indeed exist, as seen in the Bash shell screenshot below:
While they are quite simply not visible through either Explorer or command prompt, even when run as an elevated command prompt. The example screenshot below shows me trying to copy one of these files into the folder. Notice the overwrite file warning and the file listing behind it.
In the above shot, I had already figured out that copying the jacob-1.15-M4-x86.dll dll using the elevated command prompt seems to work, it shows in explorer and the applications that depend on it load fine. How could a file be copied into the folder that no Windows tool can see?
I am trying to get file sharing to work with my win 8 machine and my OS X Server. The computers are on the same network with the same workgroup but I can't seem to connect. I was able to connect with the wife's win 7 home machine until I upgraded it to win 7 Ultimate now it wont connect either.
I am in the midst of the final steps in setting my my new Win 8 system.
I have a Win XP and Win 8 computer on my home network. I believe that I have set up file and printer sharing correctly. I can access the files and printer on the XP system from the Win 8 system. However, when I attempt to access the Win 8 files from the Win XP system, I get a long delay (about a minute or two) and then it asks me for the User Name & Password. I enter them and then and it works fine.
If I try to print on the printer attached to the Win 8 system from the XP system, I get a printer error unless I have already signed in with the ID & PW when accessing files. It never asks me for an ID & PW before attempting to print.
On the Win 8 system, I have selected "Turn off password protected sharing" in the "Network and Sharing Center/Advanced Sharing Settings".
The Win XP system has previously been correctly sharing files and printers with another XP system for some time and I haven't changed any settings on the XP computer.
Both the XP and Win 8 systems are assigned the same Workgroup name.
I would like to make a folder share from a tablet with windows 8 with password protected to a laptop of windows 7 and another of vista. I have followed the tutorial of File Sharing - "Share with" & "Stop Sharing" in Windows 8. My PCs have been set in the same workgroup and same user account, network discovery and file and printer sharing turned on. At the first time, it is OK for windows 7. However after some changes of account (delete and create them on both windows 8 and windows 7), it doesn't work anymore with the error from windows 7 "Login failure: user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer" whenever password protected turned on in windows 8 and only OK when password turned off.
At my company we are currently running a server (with Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard), without Active Directory, and we have a bunch of laptops running Windows 8.1 Pro. Now we want to install Dynamics CRM which requires an Active Directory domain.
I am trying to run through every anticipated problem before I do the domain configuration. The last problem that I anticipate is the following:
Our MD's laptop is currently logging in without a Microsoft account (in other words, he uses a standard local user profile in Windows 8.1 Pro). He has a whole lot of data in this profile. So now, when we configure the domain, obviously he will have to sign in using an Active Directory username and password. So question 1 is, is it possible to synchronize the current non-Windows Live account with the domain account? And second question is, when he's working from home, without the domain controller to authenticate logins, will he still be able to access his data and profile? In other words, what I'm really asking is, will we be able to kind of integrate the Active Directory account and local account as one account, but the authentication is AD based when he's at the office, but local if he's at home?
Im looking for a way to have wifi access per user for example one user can have access to wifi while another user cant have access. (Currently Using Windows 8)
In Windows 7 I used this method (Profile types) to allow wifi per user and it works great. How to Enable User-Specific Wireless Networks in Windows 7 But in Windows 8 I cant seem to set wifi access per user.
I have this problem since Windows 7, i don't remember this happens on Windows XP.
I have 2 computers with Windows 8.1 installed: desktop and laptop. I am trying to access local disk drives of "desktop" from "laptop".
For example, i type in Windows Explorer "desktopc$". "Windows Security" window pops up where i am typing credentials. If i specify "desktopadministrator" user and then provide correct password everything is fine, i can access disk C. But, if i type "desktopjohn" and provide correct password i am getting error "Access denied". "john" is my main account, it's in "Administrators" group of "DESKTOP" computer.
If i try to access the same resource over "cmd net use" i receive error "System error 5 has occurred. Access is denied."
Why "john" can't access "DESKTOP"'s disk C over LAN?
windows 2008 R2 server, win 7 and win 8.1 wkstations.
For one domain admin user only, when he logs in he sees normal mapped drives. The longer he's working, he starts seeing more and more letters mapped to the same particular network share. So after a few hours he'll have 12 drive letters all mapped to the same network share.
Doesn't matter what workstation. Doesn't seem to be a particular application.
I use the Windows Account to login to my 2 Windows 8 laptops (Lap1 and Lap2).
Lap1 - Has 1 Windows Account (Lap1Acc1) Lap2 - Has 1 Windows Account (Lap2Acc1)
In Lap2, the Windows Account Lap2Acc1 had few problem with "Trust this computer" as Windows never sent the code in the registered email. So I created a fresh new Windows Account (call this Lap2Acc2) with new email. I deleted the Lap2Acc1 from Lap2 using User Accounts and created a new user using Lap2Acc2.
Now the problem is. Before removing Lap2Acc1, I didn't leave the HomeGroup and so, for some unknown reasons, in both of my laptops, in the HomeGroup tabs I see these users
Lap1Acc1 Lap2Acc1 (this was removed from Lap2 as a user, but it still exists in the HomeGroup) Lap2Acc2
Windows XP has a delay time of a few seconds when deleting an in-use file. (Example: when an mp3 file is open and you delete that file, Windows XP will say that it is deleting the file for about 3 seconds, then says that it cannot delete the file, since the file is open).
I want to set the settings in Windows 8 to do exactly the same thing. Windows 8's default setting is to immediately state that the mp3 file is in use and cannot delete it. I want Windows 8 to wait for 3 seconds until it states that it cannot delete it.
Reason why I need this option is that I delete the file first, then I change the mp3 file so it is no longer in use. That's the only order of doing this thing that I do.
I remotely support a couple of relatives using Team Viewer, and am able (and do) to sometimes go into their systems to carry out updates without them being there.
I would like to leave a sticky note of some sort on their Windows 8.1 start screens after I have been there to tell them what I have done. I would like them to easily delete the note once it has been read. Is this possible on the start screen, or is the way that it works unsuitable for this sort of thing?
Any simple application that can do this? I have looked on the web for suitable applications, but those that I have found seem unsuitable for one reason or another.
I have a wireless router and am connecting 2 phones (wifi) and 1 PC (ethernet). The PC is running Windows 8 and has two User Accounts (I'll call them "Business" and "Personal").
Since setting up the router, the phones have connected over wifi without problem. If I log onto the "Personal" user account on my PC, it connects over ethernet, and the phones still work with wifi.
However, if I log my PC onto my "Business" user account, the PC says it has connected to the Home Hub via the ethernet cable, but there is no internet connection. It also causes the internet connection on the phones to drop (sometimes the wifi goes down completely, sometimes it says it's connected to wifi, but there is no internet). I don't think it's an ethernet problem either, as I connected my PC wirelessly instead of with the cable, and the same thing happens.
The PC only ever does this on the "Business" user account, the "Personal" account works fine (I'm using that now). Looked everywhere to find a solution, I assume it's something in the settings, rather than a router issue. Can't find the answer anywhere.
