I have Windows XP machine. The machine is part of a domain called ssabc domain.
My username is abc.xxy in the ssabc domain.
From this machine I need to access a shared folder  in a server which is of Windows 2008 R2.
I have created a shared folder & I have created a user for me as abc.xxy. The server is not part of any domain & it is part of work group.
The folder i shared is "test"

From my XP machine i tried to access the shared folder from Run Prompt.
\\10.10.10.10\test

When i did that i am not getting any prompt to type the username & password to access the folder.
I get the error message saying "can not find file \\10.10.10.10\test". Verify the path or Internet Address is correct".

Let me know how to address this.

It is going to use your AD credentials  go into your control panel credential store
add a new credential for the servername   with the syntax servername\username and apply the correct password and then you should be able to connect to \\servername\test
