passwordless network shares


Recommended Posts

On my home lan I have 2clients plus a server running Win2k3 where all of the needed files are stored.

Lots of times I bring home computers which need fixing and it is annoying to having to always input the username and password to access the network shares.

Is it possible to modify Win2k3 so that it doesn't need a password/username for the network shares?

ps. I know this is possible in linux and since Windows also uses SMB I hope it is possible in Windows also.

Allow Everyone Full Control in Share permission

Add Everyone to NTFS security and restrict to read and execute

Enable the Guest account

Run gpedit.msc

Enable "Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users"

Disable "Network access: Restrict anonymous access to Named Pipes and Shares"

Remember that your Windows 2003 machine is now less secure and might be open to hackers or malware.
