I seem to be having a problem with hamachi, I can connect to webservers, VNC etc but i cannot create a network drive. When i try to create a network drive i am asked to enter a username and password, i have tried as many as i can think of and i have also changed some of the settings user config and in the firewall but its still not working.

I did look at the hamachi support page but that was no help, the options that they mention are not on the most current version that i have. Also i am only running on the free version so will that have any effect on what i am tring to do.

I have it installed on a Windows 2000 Server (my work server in a remote location) and a Windows XP Home (my location). I am asked for this username and password which ever computer i try to make the shared folder on and i should be able to connect to at least one of them with the correct credintals.

Any help with this matter would be greatly received.

First open Hamahi, go to Preferences, Security and make sure to uncheck the option to block services.

Then try mapping the drive again. If the drive was created with security you will need the owner's or an administrator password. This is the one on the target machne, not your local one,
