"User has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer"
when trying to map a drive
MS error Event ID: 4311
This error can occur because of an incorrect registry setting.
The value for HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NetBT\Parameters\TransportBindName can be blank. Set it to "\Device\", reboot.
Troubleshooting Try running nbtstat -n on the server. It should display something like this where the serverName parameter can be seen (in this case the localhost was named ALF33ENT and the serverName parameter was set as above with a trailing A on the end).
If you are running Windows 2003 and get an error like Failed to access NetBT Driver - NetBT may not be loaded, you may not be logged in as an administrator. You must be an administrator to run nbtstat. If you are still getting this error, you might want to reset your network settings. You can do this by running the command netsh int ip reset c:\reset.log and rebooting. Before doing that - Please note that this will reset your TCP/IP settings and your IP address will be set to DHCP if it was static before. Therefore, make sure you copy down your static IP addresses and nameserver settings and have a way to connect back to the server. After the reboot, you can reset your static IP and name servers.
Folder Share In Workgroup
I did. "Everyone" has read permission in sharing, and only Ted (& admin) have full rights in security. But Ted can only open files "read-only"
It is because Computername/Ted (which he is using) is not the same thing as Servername/Ted which only exists on the server and is the account that has the rights.
My "workgroup" techniques may be a bit rusty but if the Workgroup Names on all machines match and if the accounts on all machines are spelled the same and if the matching accounts also use matching passwords then it should work transparently.
But if that all still doesn't work just make the server a DC, join the workstations to it, and be done with it. As long as you keep the Domain design simple and don't try to do more than you know how to do,..it is *easier* to work with a Domain than it is to work with a workgroup.
You mean the Workgroup Names? There is no such thing as a "local domain".
The name need to match,....Ok,..well they don't *need* to match,...but see where I'm going here?,...I am trying to create a simple, straight-forward, non-vague, "by-the-book" situation here so that it is easier to troubleshoot.
This is such a small setup - just 3 PCs - I didn't bother with a DC as it seemed hardly worth the effort & of no use.
A DC is almost *always* worth the effort no matter how small the situation is.
Workgroups are *always* more trouble to deal with. I thought maybe it would ask for an additional login, but it just opens the folder & makes the files read-only.
The only other thing I can think of is errors in the Permissions. Double check them.

Denial of service (DoS) attacks are network attacks that are aimed at making a computer or a particular service on a computer unavailable to network users. Denial of service attacks can be difficult to defend against. To help prevent denial of service attacks, you can harden the TCP/IP protocol stack on your Windows Server 2003 computers. The default TCP/IP stack configuration is tuned to handle standard intranet traffic. If you connect a computer directly to the Internet, Microsoft recommends that you harden the TCP/IP stack against denial of service attacks.
