    HI ALL ,
    i needed to share an external hard disk in my department which consist of 7users including myself.

    but somehow i could not get it done on other workstations.
    for eg: my colleague jennifer is suppose to access the external hard disk contents.but somehow she cannot map to my hard disk at all.

    can someone tell me wad to do and how to do?
    thanks.

    I suggest talking to your IT folks. We're loath to fool around with corporate networks, since changing the network configuration can cause other problems. Obviously, we don't know exactly how the network is configured, or what requirements the overall network places on each workstation.

    You're missing my point. Any configuration changes to local workstations can affect the whole network and/or your connections to the network. In addition, if this is a company sanctioned alteration, they should be willing to assist you in properly configuring this without affecting their network and your connections to the network.

    Again, we don't assist in making alterations to corporate networks.

    I'm going to close this thread.
