Access to file share to non domain anonymous users

Hi all,

Running a 2012 box which has a folder shared that I need anonymous non domain accounts to access. I have tried sharing using the everyone and anonymous groups but still I cannot access the share.

Is this possible?

Create a guest user if it is deleted/missing from AD and give access to the guest user

What rights have you given to the "Anonymous logon" group? Can you access the share with credentials? Isn't you firewall blocking access?
You can temporary disable the firewall and check again.
