I've recently installed Linux Mint and with it as host I installed Windows XP Professional as a client using VMware 6.5. Now I'm trying to network the 2 OS's together and am getting totally frustrated. I first set up the small office or home network.in Windows with the following characteristics:
Computer description: Virtual Computer
Workgroup Name: Home
No Problem so far
Next I start setting up shares in Linux as root.
I right click on a folder and select "Sharing options"
Then I select "Share this folder", "Allow other people to write in this folder", and "Guest access (for people without a user account)and then select "Create Share".
In the next screen I see the message
"Nautilus needs to add permissions"
read permission by others
write permission by others
execute permission by others
with a button to add permissions automatically which I select.
The folder now appears in network but I cannot access it because I don;t have the proper permissions and when I go back to the permission page of the folder in Linux I see that the permissions have not been changed and I cannot change them manually. Now I get frustrated and cannot figure out what to do next. Can anybody help me?
