Software Deployment Question

What should the \\kbox\client permissions be?

04/22/2015 1342 views
Is the image below correct? Would it be harmful to set Everyone to Read\Execute?

Some of our clients aren't able to connect. My own Mac laptop gets prompted for credentials if I try to browse the Client share.

According to our Network group, we aren't blocking anything internally. Most Windows computers can access the Client share regardless of who is logged on.

Those are the same permissions as my KBox. When connecting from a Mac specify to connect as Guest to the client share and it should mount. The permissions on the client share shouldn't be relevant to clients not being able to connect.

    That works. Thanks Chuck!

The \\kbox\client share is read only on the K1000 itself, so the permissions should be at least read,but having execute would make no difference.  Clientdrop, on the other hand, has read/write permissions for a specific K1000 "admin" account and a password you set.
