Non Domain system writing to domain shared folder

I have 3 locked down Windows 7 embedded systems (non-domain systems) that need to write to a domain system folder. I have been able to write to the domain folder if I give it EVERYONE access. This looks un-secure. What is the best way to secure this folder so that only the 3 kiosk system systems can write to this folder but no one else (and the domain admin also of course).

You could create a user account on the server for them to authenticate with like "Kiosk" and then add that user to the share with read/write access. You could then also remove the other non system and admin accounts from the share.  Then go each Kiosk box and open file explorer and in the address bar type \\SERVERNAME and hit enter. You should see a list of the shares after you are prompted for login. Enter the Kiosk account info and be cure to check Save Password option. If it was me I would even map the share to a drive letter.

you can authenticate to a domain server, with a valid domain ID in a script on the non domain computer, just map a drive in a script ussing the /USERNAME: switch. in the script use a highly restricted domain account, and qualifie hte username <DOMAINNAME>\<USERNAME>.  just make damn sure the account it denied on anything except the exact folder you want them to write to. and test throughly before putting it live.

I've used similar scripts when a client has a rented office and they don't want the tenant in their files, but the tenant just can't seem to handle authenticating once a day to print and so on.

the script command would look something like

Net use z: \\ServerName\ShareName /USERNAME:DomainName\UserName /password|pooky'spassword

I can never rember the exact passowrd switch syntax but it's not hard to figure out while testing.
