    lol hm... i dunno? probably workgroup. I can see all the computers connected and i can access all the files EXCEPT for Program Files. The system says that i cant share the folder because it holds my OS. i'm pretty sure there is a way.

    Does the name/password that is being used to connect to the machine have admin privileges on the server end?

    go check out in ur sever
    maybe u do not have the neccessary rights to
    share it
    "administrator" is just a user name
    so maybe u do not have enought rights
    give urself all rights
    and try again
