win xp access share on domain workstation
Posted on 2012-09-06
I have a bit of an issue with getting one of our touchscreens (win XP PRO SP2) to connect to a share that exists on a domain workstation (Win 7 PRO)
1. Is there any way I can access a share whilst outside the domain? I have created the same user account on the touchscreen and the workstation, but it keeps bringing up the username /password box.
2. As a solution I decided to just join the touch screen to the domain, but this required a password on the touchscreen, and microsoft do not provide a virtual screen keyboard at login of XP, so this solution seams to be out. There is no external USB port on the touchscreen for another keyboard.
Desperate for a solution and hopeful that someone here has some good advice.
