  2. Hello,

    Thank you for posting.

    From your post, my understanding of this issue is: You can access a folder
    on the server and copy files to it from a client workstation, but you
    cannot copy files to a folder on the client workstation from the server.
    If this is not correct, please feel free to let me know.

    Based on my experience, this issue may be related to the permissions of the
    folder. In Windows XP or Windows 2000 systems, there are two kinds of
    permissions can apply to the shared folders, Share permissions and Security
    permissions (NTFS permissions), and both of them control the access
    permissions of the shared folder. Therefore, please refer to the following
    steps to verify the permission settings:

    1. On the client workstation, right-click on the shared folder and then
    click Properties.
    2. Click Security tab, you can view and modify Security permissions here.
    3. You may add the user account which is used to log on the server and then
    give it Full Control allow permissions. Click OK.
    4. Test this issue again.
    5. If the issue still exits, please use the "Effective Permissions" to
    verify the user's permissions on the folder:

    a. Right click on the shared folder, and click Properties.
    b. Click Security tab, click Advanced button, click Effective Permissions
    tab.
    c. Click Select button to select the user account which is used to log on
    the server.
    d. Check the user's effective permissions on this folder.

    If the issue still exits, please perform the following tests:

    1. Create a new folder on the client workstation and share it. Give
    Evenyone Full Control allow permissions in both Share permissions and NTFS
    permissions.
    2. Test whether we can copy files to this share folder from the server, if
    cannot, test whether we can copy files to this share folder from other
    workstations.
    3. Create a new share folder on other workstations and test this issue
    again.

    In addition, please help me to capture a screen shot of the access denied
    error message so that I can perform further research on this issue. To
    capture a screen shot, please refer to the following steps:

    1. When the screen appears, press the Print Screen key several times, which
    is to the right of the F12 key on the keyboard.
    2. Open Paint or Microsoft Word or WordPad.
    3. Click Edit (menu) -> Paste or press Ctrl + V.
    4. Click File (menu) -> Save. Save it to a file and attach it in email to
    send it to me at .

  3. Hi Sujith,

    Thanks for your reply, and I am glad to hear that the original problem has
    been resolved.

    Regarding the Windows XP client problem, I would suggest we perform the
    following steps to verify some settings on the Windows XP client:

    1. Log on the Windows XP as a local Administrators group member.
    2. Click Start, click Run, type "gpedit.msc" (without the quotations
    marks), and then click OK.
    3. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security
    Settings\Local Policies\User Rights Assignment.
    4. On the right pane, locate and double click the "Access this computer
    from the network" setting.
    5. Verify that at least the following user accounts are in the list:
    Administrators
    Everyone
    Power Users
    Users
    6. Locate and double click the "Deny acces to this computer from the
    network" setting, and remove all user accounts from the list.
    7. Close Group Policy Editor, and restart the computer.
    8. Test the issue again.

    If the issue persists, please go to the next steps:

    1. Log on the Windows XP as a local Administrators group member, open Group
    Policy Editor.
    2. Navigate to Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security
    Settings\Local Policies\Security Options.
    3. Locate and double click on the "Accounts: Guest account status" setting,
    and click Enabled, and then click OK.
    4. Locate and double click the "Network access: Sharing and security model
    for local accounts" setting.
    5. Click to select "Guest only - local users authenticate as Guest"
    setting, and then click OK.
    6. Close Group Policy Editor, and then restart the computer.
    7. Please ensure the Windows Firewall or other third-party firewall is all
    disabled on the Windows XP.
    8. Test the issue again.

    Regarding the Windows 98 problem, please first perform the following tests:

    1. Whether you can access the SBS Server from the Win98 machine?
    2. Whether you can access other client machines from the Win98 machine?
    3. Whether you can Ping the IP address of the Win98 machine from the SBS
    Server and other machines?
    4. Whether you can Ping the computer name of the Win98 machine from the SBS
    Server and other machines?
    5. On the SBS server or other client machines, click Start, click Run, type
    "\\IPaddress" (without the quotation marks, where the IPaddress is the IP
    address of the Win98 machine), and then click OK. Whether the Win98
    machine can be accessed?
    6. On the SBS server or other client machines, click Start, click Run, type
    "\\computername" (without the quotation marks, where the IPaddress is the
    IP address of the Win98 machine), and then click OK. Whether the Win98
    machine can be accessed?

    Please let me know your test results at your earliest convenience. Should
    you have any question or concern, please feel free to let me know. I look
    forward to your reply.

    Have a nice day!
