TCP/IP Networking connection Problem thru Windows  Start -RUN

Hi all

We have 8 computers with Windows XP Professional SP2 installed. They are networked with TCP/IP Protocol and thru Workgroup. Computer Names goes from KC1 TO KC8 and ip address goes from 192.168.1.1  to 192.168.1.8

All are logged as Administrator

When we connect to kc1 computer thru  Windows Maping Drive - It connects properly and we are able to browse it fully well.

When we type \\192.168.1.1\netgold\  (Netgold is folder name)  at the Windows -Run command - It prompts with kc1\guest and asks for the password.  This creates problem. We have changed the setting at KC1 Control Panel - Users - Guest User and put to off. But it still prompts with the Window KC1\Guest

Problem
a) Our application requires to read the compute by \\192.168.1.1\ netgold\ and is successful only in that case when we are able to verify its proper running thru Windows ->Start-Run ->\\192.168.1.1\netgold\

Can you suggest cause of the problem and some other workaround where we can directly verify the proper working of \\192.168.1.1\netgold\  folder browsing using  .NET Framework  classes

b) Further when we check the system thru Maping drive ->It opens very fast in just 1-2 seconds . When we type \\192.168.1.1\netgold\  at the Windows -Start->Run command it takes much longer time say from 10-30 seconds even when it open opens properly although complete network is just 8 computers wide we wish to understand its behaviour of slow response.

Right click on the folder and check both security and sharing permissions, the sharing permission should be everyone and select administrator for security.

This is true that when the Folder is shared, it reaches that folder and shows files thru Start->Run command


a) Both the computers are logged with administrator logon and the same password, either it show the files or it should prompt with User /password windwos . Why it shows the userid/password window with KC1/Guest and then password. Further Userid Combo Box is shown in the disabled mode and we can not change the userid

b) Response is too much slow for showing files thru Start ->Run command

Maybe it's showing the guest ID because the user trying to authenticate doesn't have an Account.

Did you create the same 8 username/password Account combinations on all 8 computers?

Same userid i.e administrator and same password is used to log  on to all the 8 computers.

However we have narrowed down the problem to sharing. When we share the folder at Computer say KC1/netgold  and we share the folder netgold at KC1 this problem does not come and it shows the files at KC1/Netgold thru Windows ->Start->Run command \\192.168.1.1\netgold\ However the response is very slow

If we map the folder \\KC1\Netgold\ from accessing computer say KC5 and then we explore the folder \\KC1\Netgold\ it is very fast. We want to understand its different behaviour of slowness thru Run command \\192.168.1.1\netgold\

This appear to be weird, but why not to let mapping occurs on log on every time (remember mapping on next logon).
