I have a domain controller with some shared folders. usually when i try to access it from a new computer on the network it asks you to log in. when i connect wirelessly to the network from my new Sony Vaio computer with windows 7 it shows me all the shares without asking for a password. need this resolved asap. whole companies data is available to anyone who can crack a WEP key.

do you guys need a computer admin .. cause i will be more then happy to take a position......
i would start with the domain controller first ..The admin of company will have to do this or whoever first installed it ...you can go to active directory on the domain and make sure password complexity is setup for that folder in the domain controller.......... right click on the folder click properties and go in an set it up if u don't know how i would suggest you get a admin or go to the admin about this i could spend a week on the fact of covering domain controller's shared files , active directory and group policy's and i still wouldn't cover it all .lol here is some precautions an some steps on making domain controller more secure..

Allow log on locally Access this computer from the network

These settings exist under the Computer Configuration|Windows Settings|Security Settings|Local Policies|Security Options node.
Domain controller: LDAP server signing requirements Domain member: Digitally encrypt or sign secure channel data
Network access: Allow anonymous SID/Name translation
Network access: Do not allow anonymous enumeration of SAM accounts and shares
Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users

need more on securing domain i got ya ............

active directory security setting for shared files on a domain controller first of all it will help to know what kind active directory you using ..example (samba, linux, windows server 03 05 etc etc ... do you have simple file share on or off?

going with most common windows active directory 2000 an up now you have to have some knowledge of NTFS file shareing .... #

Shared folder permissions don't restrict access to users who gain access to the folder at the computer where the folder is stored. They apply only to users who connect to the folder over the network.

Shared folder permissions are the only way to secure network resources on a FAT volume. NTFS permissions aren't available on FAT volumes.

The default shared folder permission is Full Control, and it is assigned to the Everyone group when you share the folder.

To control how users gain access to a shared folder, you assign shared folder permissions.

so you should tighten up domain policy and active directory policy on user's who can access that shared file check pw policy for that folder make sure it's lock in an out an only certain ppl can accesses it you could even go has far as encrypting that file on a network and only admin an a few others that need to access the folder will have encryption to access it .. let me know on this cause this is a company's data and any smart company would have there account, files, domains, and user policy secure... i would love to hook um up .............................get back with me on the results or whatever else u need to know...thx
