Home Network File Transfer Issues

  1. Good afternoon everyone.

    I am having a small problem on my home network that is driving me if having a home network wasn't enough. Any way, I have everything up and running. Everything sees everything else.... I can download from one machine to the other..

    BUT.... I can't upload to the other machine or vice versa! I can only pull not push the data. I can't figure out where the sharing properties are snagging the situation. I have everything shared / users can modify data etc... but to no avail.

    Any thoughts? Is this not a sharing issue? Is it a router issue? Zone alarm doesn't appear to be the issues because I shut it down and end up with the same results.

    Your held would be much appreciated.

    sounds like the shares are all R/O

    what os are you running; XP or XP Pro?

    XP Pro. You are right about the R/O. No matter how I set the files R/O or not R/O... as soon as I go back to the properties the box is checked again.

    How do I permanetly change the r/o to NOT r/o. Just clicking and changing the properties doesn't actually change the files.

    Thanks for the reply.

    xp file perms will be useful to you. You need a Level 5 value

    It has to be something associated with permissions.
