Accessing Shares on Windows 2003 Domain from Workgroup
Posted on 2006-10-26
We have a client that has a windows 2003 domain structure with approx 150 client machiness (xp and 2000 pro) They have about 20 machines that are configured in a workgroup as they are running Point of Sale software. They do not want to join these to the domain.
We have some software that requires client machines to connect to a nework share to get files. when i try to browse to the network share on one of the servers i get presented with a network logon box asking me to authenticate. We cant authenticate as these machines are just point of sale machines and the users dont have access to enter credentials.
What do i need to do to be able to access the shares on the windows 2003 machine without having to provide credentials. Is there an open method sharing that can be enabled.
