hi. i have successfully setup my LAN so i'm able, while working at WinXP box A, to grab files from WinXP box B. cool. no big deal.

i decided however, that while working on Sys A, it might be efficient for me to browse my 'localhost' directories on Sys B

here's what i've got in the httpd.conf : Sys A:

Alias /nickname/ "\\SystemB-Name\htdocs-nickName"

<Directory "\\SystemB-Name\htdocs-nickName">
   AllowOverride all
   Options MultiViews Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
      Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
       Order deny,allow
       Deny from all

at first Apache 2.2 wouldn't start, but i realized i needed to switch the slash-type (forward -to -backward, win-style). then she started right up. cool!

however, pointing the browser to the Alias dir gives me an error 403.

My first thought is that it's got something to do w/ my .htaccess directives, or simply the httpd.conf Order allow,deny..., but i say .htaccess 'cause i've got it setup to allow overrides.

my question is this. Obviously (i THINK), System B, where my .htaccess is allowing pehaps only from, and it's getting requests to browse (hmmm.. just thought this moment... maybe my Sygate Firewall... but-- then whey the 403, ya know?)...

What should be my "Order deny, allow" section (on System B is my concern, right?... the remote 'Workstation' location, where my desired contents reside, which i seek to browse from Sys A) for telling Apache from which Systems it will allow browsing its contents.

I've experienced success browsing the "htdocs" contents of a "Slave Drive", (eg. 'E:\Apache2\htdocs\" or /mnt/windows/Apache2/htdocs/ on Fedora) but this is apparently a little different, going through the MS Wired Base Station.

thanks! Your help is appreciated.
