Hello,

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!
