Admin Share on XP SP2 in Workgroup
Posted on 2007-10-15
I work alot with domains, but not to much with workgroups.
I have 5 XP machines on a workgroup. There is a comon user/password on each computer with local admin rights.
I can access each computer by going to \\computername\c$ and typing in appropriate admin user and account.
However, on one machine, the username is greyed out by default (ahtough it shows \\computername\guest in the greyed out area)
I don't want to turn on the guest account.
On all the other computers on the workgroup I can access the computer via \\computername\c$ with the appropriate username/password for that machine. Why not on this one?
I know it's got to be something silly . . .and I have hesitated to ask for some time.
