Mapped Network Drive
I've got a question.
I currently have my webserver located on a machine that I don't mess with a lot (ie: stuck in a corner behind a pile of computer books, etc). So, on the computer I use everyday, I mapped a network drive to the root folder of the website (the wwwroot folder).
Anyway, when you are on the computer that actually holds the website, you can control permissions to the folder (adding users to the security list of the folder and granting "View Directory Listing" permissions, etc) But if I connect to the webserver on the computer I use everyday through the mapped network drive to access the root folder, I don't get the option to set security on the folder when I right click it.
So, my question is...do you get to set security permissions over a mapped network drive? The two computers are in a workgroup and not a domain...that's why I think it's not working, but does anyone know for sure? I don't want to have to go to my webserver everytime I want to add a user to my FTP userlist or change the directory viewing permissions. I want to be able to do it through my mapped network drive on my "everyday" computer.
