Share Permissions and security quirk

smantz asked
Last Modified: 2010-04-18
I am trying to access a domain network share from a non -domain machine.  To enter the server I must provide credentials of a domain user with permissions on that machine which in this case is the administrator credentials.
I go to the folder but receive access denied.  I add security and permission rights to the folder but am still denied access.
This folder is right under the root (c:\) of the server.
I have another share that is within the program files folder with similar permissions and security rights and have no problem viewing the contents.  I have even added the administrator of the domain to the root drive security with no affect on the outcome.
Is the problem an issue with the actual folder creation?
I know a client machine logged into the domain with proper credentials has no problem however; I have the need time to time to access shares from non domain machines.
Lastly, from a client logged in locally and not on the domain, one can see the security tab for the share that can be opened while the security tab under properties of the inaccessible share isn't even there.
I hope someone has some whiz bang solution (even it is something simple that I am missing.
