How can I disable or automate the username and password requirement when opening remote folders using a VPN connection.
Posted on 2007-11-23
In order to connect to my host computer via xp pro VPN I need to enter the username/password specified designated to VPN users. No problem. But once I am connected when I use the run command to access the folder I am prompted for the username and password again.
It seems that the hosted shared folder is not technically "shared" until I open the shared folder in the run menu then enter the password for the second time. I want to eliminate this step.
This is a problem because I am dealing with some poorly written DVR software that needs that folder to be shared before it can review recorded video for the NOVICE user. I want to make this process as user friendly as possible.
