I need to create a completely unsecure folder within our domain such that, anyone who has access to the LAN the domain resides can read/write to it without credentials or authentication... and for the life of me cannot think of how to do that. Any thoughts?

All I can find setting the folder and share permissions to everyone and then modifying the local security policy to let anonymous logons apply to everyone permissions.
No way I will be doing that!
