Standalone windows 2012 srvr & shares

SecurityWindows Server 2012* workgroup* policy
5 Comments1 Solution55 ViewsLast Modified:
I have a windows 2012 server that requires users to connect via http for a 3rd party application.

right now, when two users connect concurrently, the application freezes. so to fix this, i had to create the users identical (same username and password) on the server.   isn't there a security policy on the server that would allow users to connect without having a unique user accounts on the server?

this is not an AD its a workgroup environtment.  don't want to go ad or add a domain yet. all these are in the coming plans.

please advise,
