    How can I gain access to move files in my home network?

    I have retired a second computer and have hooked it via Ethernet to a remote location on my home. I can see the files on the remote computer and from the remote computer to the main. When I try drag/drop to get files from the main to remote, I get a permissions denied message. I've changed permissions to allow everyone access but continue to get messages like "destination folder access denied". I get different messages depending on what I've tried, and I can repeat them or supply screen captures if that will help understand my problem.

    Is there a good tutorial somewhere that can walk me through unlocking all of the restrictions so that I can move files between computers at will? This is not an office or public network where security is an issue. I'm only trying to move files between two home computers on my wired network.

    You need to change Security settings on the drive to allow permissions for "Everyone". Specifically your User Folder. I just set mine to no password, public sharing on "All Networks" in Advanced Sharing Options. Mainly because if I am working on my Linux test box or my wife's laptop. I can pull up anything that may be on my machine.

    I think that I may have found the key. I changed permissions on the receiving computer and finally got the file to be copied. I'll continue to work with this routine. Maybe my problem is solved. I'll post back later.
