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?

Shared the folder with Full Control for Everyone and enable anonymous access for the shared resource

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!
