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?

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.
