Hi Everybody,

I have a G3 (i think, powermac 5500) connected to a LAN with a PC running 2K adv server with a UAM volume.

I am able to see files on the UAM volume from the Mac, but every time I try to upload a file to the volume, it tells me the disk is locked. I have set permissions on the PC to allow everyone full control of the UAM volume, so it should not be a problem on the PC side.

Anybody know what I need to do? I know more about PCs than Macs so any help would be appreciated.

The Mac is running OS 9

Do you mean on the PC or the Mac?

The PC is set up so that anyone has full control (Read & Write) of the UAM volume, and I believe the user account I use to connect has Administrative rights (I'm at work now but I'll double-check when I get home). As far as rights level on the Mac, I'm clueless about how to even check that.

Well, I network my macs and PCs all the time and each OS gives me a different headache. So far 2k/XP and OSX play nice. I have had the best results making an account on each device that is the same, username/password & rights.

On OSX you would go into the System Preferences to the Users applet. You would be able to verify rights there no problem. Anything before that I am unfamiliar with.
