Setting up a shared location without AD

I have 2 machines running Windows Server 2003, neither of which are part of a domain.  I have a shared folder set up on server 1 named "IQS Share" that I would like accessed by server 2.  The application is using the fully qualified path name "\\server1\IQS Share" but every time it prompts for a user ID.  I've setup identical "IQSAdmin" accounts on both machines with the same password and given the appropriate permissions, but no matter what...it still prompts.  Also, this is on a Terminal Server and can launch several sessions and I need all this to connect flawlessly.

Thanks in advance!

is there a way to cache the network password for that userID through network passwords in the userprofile?
