Sharing a folder with no security on Windows 2003 std workgroup server
Posted on 2010-11-08
Here's the situation - i have a windows 2003 standard computer on a workgroup. I have other client computers on the same workgroup, and i'm trying to access a folder that's shared on the 2003 computer. The folder share has both share and NTFS security set to give the 'everyone' group full rights.
YET - when someone tries to connect to the computer via UNC (by hostname or by IP), they get the login window open (prompting for username and password).
I don't want that window to pop up. Is there any way around that? I want anyone on the same workgroup (or even NOT on the same workgroup) to be able to access that share.
