This one is driving me nuts! I have several Windows XP Pro clients on a workgroup with a Windows 2003 Server. I have a shared folder on the 2003 server that I would like everyone to be able to access without being prompted for a password. The problem is that I always get prompted for a username/password despite the settings I've changed. I've trawled the net and found people with similar problems but no solutions.
The folder in question has share and NTFS permissions set for the Everyone group. The server has the "Let everyone permissions apply to anonymous users" policy enabled, the Everyone group is included in the "Access this computer from the network" policy, the guest account is enabled and has a password set. I've toyed with all the other relevant settings I can find but nothing seems to help.
Your help will be greatly appreciated!
