Sharing a folder on a standalone Windows 7 machine is not working
Posted on 2014-11-12
I am trying to share a folder on a computer that is not joined into my domain. I have given full share and security permissions to Everyone and I can't still see it. When I try to browse into this share using the UNC "\\%IP%\sharename" it keeps asking me for authentication, even though Everyone has full permission.
I have disabled the firewall and enable the Netbios over TCP/IP as well when troubleshooting.
This shared folder is in the C:\ of a Windows 7 professional computer.
Any hints will be greatly appreciated, Thanks!
