Exploring ReadyNAS Ultra as "Admin"


Exploring ReadyNAS Ultra as "Admin"

Hi All,
Just got a ReadyNAS Ultra 4, and having a little trouble exploring the readynas as "admin" in winxp.

If I go to Computers in network group it detects readynas fine, however as i open it, it will access netgearnas as a guest.
I would like to be able to acces it using as "admin",for access to c:. Seems I was able to do it in Win 7 somehow. Couldn't figure it out in XP.

Appriciate all the help.

Re: Exploring ReadyNAS Ultra as "Admin"

In XP, Go to Start > Run, type "cmd" (no quotes) and press enter.

Then type "net use" (no quotes).

Delete all the connections to the NAS and manually connect as the "admin" user.
