Windows Server 2003 - Need to Share a Folder on LAN - Security Settings

I setup a new windows server 2003.

I right clicked a folder on my data drive and opened it up for sharing.

I have not configured any additional security options for the folder.

I am not using Active Directory.

I want to setup a drive-mapping from a separate deveopment computer to the folder that I shared on the server.

However, I believe due to a permissions issue, I am unable to see the shared folder from my development machine.

What security settings or permissions do I need to set to be able to see & use this shared folder?

This server is 100% internal and I'm not concerned about security

Thanks

Hello,

On the same window where you enabled sharing, click on the security tab and add "everyone".  This will grant access.

Assuming that you have 'shared' the folder .. make sure the 'sever service' is running on the machine that hosts this share.  lets say this server is called Server1 and the share is called 'share'
from a remote machine go to START>RUN> Type .. \\server1\Share
are u able to connect ?
