Hey guys. I'm having a strange problem where I cannot share files from my external hard drive (Seagate) over my home network. The error I get when I double click on the folder from the other computer is "You do not have permission to access \\[my ip address]\test. Contact your network administrator to request access". The problem is strange because I can share any file on my other hard drives just fine. All the sharing, security settings, and owner settings are virtually identical on the folders I've tested with, so I'm kind of at a loss here.
I'd also like to throw in that password protected file sharing doesn't work at all for me with any files period. When I turn that on, I get a separate error from the other computer that says "\\[my ip address] is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer."
The computer I'm trying to share from has Windows 8.1 pro installed. The computers I've tested with have Windows 7 Home and Windows Vista Ultimate. Any help is appreciated guys.
