I have a few users from our parent company in Italy who will be back an forth between companies for the next several months. Wen they are here in the US I need them to be able to access network shares and printers. I cannot unjoin them from the Italian Domain. My problem is that from these notebooks I cannot browse to the US domain even though they have the local DNS and WINS servers. When I try to do directly to a Share (\\server\public) I do get an authentication window. But It will not take any combination of username and passwords. Even when I use a full name (ie DOMAIN/User). These notebooks are from Italy so everything is in Italian. But I have bee doing this long enough to manage to get around without having someone translate for me.

Is there something I am missing with how to authenticate users from non-domain pc's? Does Italian XP use diferent authentication standards?
