3937RE: [fhctech] Networking problem
- Oct 22, 2002I tried sharing the data as read only on a Win2K Pro file server with
the same assumption, that it would treat it like a CD ROM. I also tried
it with change permissions. Then I set up a Redhat Linux server to see
if all of those fancy file locking options would help. No-go.

Just as a thought, how about setting the share on the server to "read
only"? I'm wondering if the one computer is creating some kind of
scratch files that are messing up the other stations. The other
possibility is that the files are being "locked" for read/write access.
If you set "read only" then the computer will have to treat the files
the same way as on a CD. It may also solve the locking problem since
there is no need to lock a file that won't be written to.
