    iMac running osx lion server and pc running win 7
    all the files on the iMac can be accessed by the pc
    only public files on the pc can be accessed by the iMac
    when i try and access files with administrator rights on the pc through the iMac i get a "no entry sign".
    they are connected through a home network with cat 5 cables
    driving me mad as i want to access the films and music stored on the pc with the iMac.

    I assume you have set both share permissions and security permissions on the shared folders on the PC?

    You have shared the folders right?

    yes set everything i think is right.using the iMac when i view the public folders on the pc all is ok,but when i view admin folders i can see the folders but they have a no entry sign type symbol

    all the help on the net seems to point to viewing osx folders on a win 7 machine not the other way around

    The simple answer would be to put the files in the public folder
