I have a situation where I am trying to get a username and password prompt for a file share on a server 2008 machine when being accessed from computers on the same network. There a not a domain in place, and my client doesn't want to convert to a domain. All systems are on the default "WORKGROUP" workgroup. I am planning on creating a user on the server that has access to this share and then giving that user info to the employees for access. The user nodes are a combination of laptops desktops and tablets running Windows 7 and Windows 8.
