Problems with share folder in Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

Hi Every body I need to share a folder in Windows Server 2008 R2, y select the folder make right click and select Share With, and select the user (local users) that i need to access to the share folder.

When i try to create a Network Drive to the Network share, only accept the credentials of the Server administrator (Administrator).
The server is not in a to a domain, the server is in Workgroup.

┬┐Some body help to share a folder to an another users different like "Administrator" ?
1 Solution
You will have to create local user accounts on the server for anyone other than administrator that you want to access the share. When you create the local user make sure the username and password is the same as they use on their workstation. Otherwise you can open the share to everyone.
