Error while doing Log Shipping using MSSQL 2008 R2

Hello there,

I am trying to setup log shipping between 2 database which are in the same network but different server machine. I mean one is on and the other one is on I setup the log shipping and the folders on the respective servers for backup and copy of the backup file. But it seems the secondary server does not have access to the folder on the primary server where it needs to copy the backup file in its own folder. How can i setup this authentication. I prefer to use the database authentication rather then windows as my network is a simple workgroup and not using Active directory or domain setup. Please help.

Are the both MSSQL instances having the same user for SQL Server and SQL Agent accounts?
