AD shares

We have a DC with shares setup for company use. There are certain geographical people that can not join the domain and want access to these shares. Here's the thing, they can never seem to access to it as it keeps saying they don't have permissions.

I want to give these people that VPN to our network but do not connect to our domain access to these shares, how do I do this?

I went into the shares permission and assigned "everyone" to change permissions, and in the security tab itself assigned EVERYONE change permissions.

Still the same error.

you might need to check the Security permissions (NTFS) along with the share permission to ensure nothing is blocking in there.

Edit the group policy object that is linked to the server that hosts the shares.
computer configuration - windows settings - security settings - security options :
network access: let everyone permissions to apply to anonymous users
The file server is a simple member server, right?
