Password requested for EVERYONE share
Posted on 2014-03-03
This is I'm sure simple enough....
I have a folder that needs to be shared (say c:\share) and it has been setup using advanced setup for share with all permissions. Security permissions on the other hand have been to be EVERYONE, initially with "most" permissions (except for taking ownership, changing perm, deleting the folder). Authenticated users, admin and system were left as are defaults.
The computer is visible but a password is requested when there is attempt to access the system \\computer or the share \\computer\sharename. I would have expected this with Authenticated users setup but not when EVERYONE permissions were added. It makes no difference if permission is set to full control.
Both systems (in this case) are Windows 7.
How can I have a custom share (not using public) and access across network without a password being required (and without setting up user account on the share computer).
