Can't be done. It is an inherent limitation  of the older authentication protocols used by workgroups.

As long as you have same username and password on both workgroup servers, you can achieve that with some limitation.
Such as you can grant access on file server for local users on one server and can access those shares from another server with logged on as identical user with same password.
OR
You can install any window server role on both workgroup servers and then able to access it from each other.
please turnoff windows firewall.

Please test it out

let me know if this is what you are looking for and if i understood your requirement correctly.

As Mashesh says, you need an account on both servers with the same password in order to get this to work like you want.

Workgroups by design do not have centralized user management and so user permissions are can only be assigned to the accounts created on the local machines.

Unless things have changed, I don't recall there being any options for trusts in workgroup computers.
