I have a windows 2000 machine and my Power Mac G5 on my network. From my G5 I can acceess ANY folder or drive on my windows 2000 machine. From my windows 2000 machine I can only access the Public folders. Nothing else. Well, I have an external hard drive that I would like to have access to from my other machine as well as folders on a secondary internal hard drive. Apple Care Support is Clueless on this subject. HOW CAN I SHARE folders on the G5 OTHER than the Public folders? There's Got to be a way!
thanks
bill

well first I'd make sure that you have the permissions set appropriately, second, I'd look into a program called "Sharepoints" or something similar on versiontracker which might help.

In fact, here's a comment from the Sharepoints page on Versiontracker:

So, I had to share a FW hard drive with a WinBlows machine that couldn't see the HFS+ volume on the drive and I got Windows filesharing started under OS X, but he could only see my Public folder... until I ran SharePoints and selected the drive. Then everything worked great! Thanks to a great developer!
