Network Shares

Hi Guys,

we have network shares that are setup on our SBServer.

in a previous company I worked for we could click on network drives that we did not have access to and it would ask you to enter credentials to access it. this was good because it meant you could access the drives from any PC in the building by simple having the administrator creds.

does anyone know how to enable this feature?

all comments welcome,

When you try to access the folder is it not giving you a prompt for credentials? What happens?

it just says 'access denied'.
Check the permissions. Is Everyone included? Remove it. Test

Do you have Password Protected sharing turned on for the server?
