Windows XP EASY Shares


Recommended Posts

:blushing:

I know this seems nonsence but i need to know how this could be done..

I want to share a folder in my pc and let anyone view that share without:

1) Having a Domain

2) Sharing a user name and a password

Any ideas?

I tried several many things, but they are not good enough

it worked with some pcs and other didnt

Anyone has tried that or any clue..

Please!!!

:unsure:

Also, you would need to make sure that the guest account is enabled. If it is off, a user name and password would be needed to access the machine remotely. Also, you might need to go into Administrative Tools, Local Security Policy, under Local Policies, User Rights Assignment and make sure Guest is NOT in the list for "Deny access to this computer from the network".

If you do not want the guest account to be able to log on to your computer, you can add Guest to "Deny log on locally" (this should also hide Guest from the welcome screen).
