Sharing a folder across a domain server and workgroup

I have been trying share a folder across the network but with a lot of trouble. The folder is on a 2008R2 Server on one domain while the Web Server is on a Windows 2003 server and not in the domain. How do I get the Windows 2003 server to access the shared folder without creating mapping?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Unless you share the folder and set the permissions for "Everyone", then what you'll need to do is create a user account on the 2008R2 that matches the username and password of the logged in user of the Windows 2003 server, then add that user to the folder and NTFS permissions.
