Folder share prompting for password on a non domain device 2008 R2 DC Folder Share

I have edited group policy to allow anonymous logon, not restrict anonymous and everyone.  I have created the share and added anonymous Login and everyone to the ntfs permissions as well as security permissions.  in Network Access>Advanced I do not have the option to set the password as not required on folder shares.

I also noticed that it works if I use an ip instead of DNS to access the share

Unfortunately nothing seemed to work however i did get my hands on a different Barcode Scanner with Windows Mobile 6.1 instead of 5.0 and was able to browse to the folder and enter in the credentials.  Thanks anyway.

is this happening for all systems ?

Please take a effected machine and try to create a entry in HOSTS file and check it.

Host file change still causes a prompt.  I also would not be able to do that on windows mobile at least that i know of.  It resolves the ip correctly however always requests a password which i cant get the mobile 5.0 to work with authentication although authenticating works from my computer.

windows mobile also will not find the path by ip address for some reason

Hi,

some times a server reboot can fix such issue. Please try to reboot the file server once.

The issue was with old technology on the windows mobile device that was causing the issue.  Although I was not able to resolve the fact that the share kept prompting for a password, I was able to resolve the issue with and updated mobile device which kept my infrastructure more secure.
