My Dreamweaver site needs to be accessed by about 10 people
per school, at 7 different schools.
I use Local/Network for the connection. CS3.
I have given these people modfiy permissions on the folder I
want them to be able to edit.
We have a Windows server, with the wwwroot folder on it. This
folder caused me a lot of problems when people opened the
connection keys I sent them, so now I bypass that folder and create
each connection on my own Contribute using \\servername\sharename.
Some people can make the connection and start editing. Some
can make the connection but cannot edit.
And now, I have people that get Access Denied right after
typing in the Connection Key password.
I cannot figure out what is required- what permissions do
these people need, and at what level?
I think no one is answering cause it's a bit difficult to
find a solution and put it online, when you have no means to really
check what's going on.
The fact that your users are on different locations could
very well be the reason for the problems, since their
configurations can be very different, making the Connection keys
you created useless. At least I experienced this same problem with
connection keys sincs CS3 came along...
You will have to go fisically to each user and check his
config (connection, router, modem, computer) and adjust the
settings in the Contribute connection-panel.
The problem could very well in this area and not so much in
the Users and Roles section.
