share permissions

i have a web server joined to a workgroup that runs a web service that needs to write and  read files from a NTFS share on our LAN,
how do i make this happen

web server > in a workgroup (not part of the domain) web service runs as network service
File server > domain server with NTFS permissions

both server and domain windows 2008

if you can map a network drive to the share and input the username and pass and such in the credentials. This is providing they are on the same IP range

but the web service is using a user id, its using network service
also is this recomended
Join the web server to the Domain! Thats the first thing I would do. Unless theres a reason why you cannot. And then as cwstad2 said, aslong as you know the credentials, you can connect to any share, remember to tick "Remember My Credentials" otherwise you'll have to keep inputting the Ands thats annoying!
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

cannot join web server to domain, as this is a very secure  environment and DMZ serrvers are all on workgroup
you dont have to join the domain set up a network share from the webserver. just use the domain credentials when prompted
How did you get on?
