Network Error - May not have permission to access file. See Details.

Recently switched from One Care to Norton. Now I can't access a file I need from a computer on the Network. The error is that I don't have permission to access file. I don't know where or how to put in the permission on the host computer.

hmm as long as you have the network administrative account you should be able to acces the file.

Assuming the machine is installed on the LAN correctly, on the machine where the file exists, load My Computer. Right click on the drive the file is on and select 'Sharing and security. Under Network Sharing and Security in the center of the page, the drive that the file is on has to have a share name and be setup for the Network either as either Read Only or to allow others on the network to change files on the drive.

With Windows Explorer, right click on the file and look at Properties and make sure attributes are set to Archive, not Read Only.

If the above is correct, look at the Windows user access as night_angel suggests. If that is OK, disable Norton and try to move the file. If it will move with Norton disabled, the problem is a setup option in Norton.
