    Accessing a W2K shared vol from WinMe, XP etc.

    I am stupid.
    I still dont understand Windows file sharing authentication.

    What I would like is an open share from a W2K box so I can edit my HS scripts etc. remotely. But it seems that whatever I set my share permissions to (Everyone, Anonymous login etc.) I always get an authentication dialog.

    Worse than that, it only asks me for a password not a login name, and promptly fails for anything I type into the password field.

    What the devil do I have to make windows do to just let me access the disk on my W2K box from other win machines without any authentication dialogs ?

    Thanks (and sorry if this is a very braindead question with an obvious answer)

    Robert

    I've done this by using the same username/password on both the W2K and W9X computers.

      Thats true, I have done that also.
      But thats not really practical if you want to give several people access.
      Also, it cannot be the only way I think.

        On your w2k machine, add a specific share on the device that you want to share, for the username and password that you will be coming in from.

        Win2000 Pro SP3, IE6, 1333Mhz512KRam, PN576V, MR26a-B1.1.617, HS-1.6.0, HSP-B52, VR/TTS-SAPI5ATT
