I have a PC using Windows 7 in where there is a folder, lets call Data, that i want to make avaliable for any computer connected to this network ( 192.168.0.X )

I have shared that folder to everyone and to the guest account.

The problem i have is that when i enter from another location, it always asks me for a user/password, and what i want is that when i type \\ is that the system drive me directly to the folder Data.

Thx for help


Share permissions are different from NTFS (file system) permissions. Check the NTFS permissions on your shared folder. You might need to allow the Everybody group read access.
