Windows Server 2003 - workgroup and shared folders

office has been donated a Server 2003 machine. We've moved the previous shared data over to it and have shared the directories. No machine can get access on the Server without a user account. Anyway around this?

thanks for any help.

You can add anonymous users to the allowed list. Need to do that for both the share and the NTFS folders that they relate to.

thanks kryten, think I've found the settings. Didn't realise they'd removed anonymous users from the Everyone acc.

Have added anonymous login to the permissions and EVERYONE cat but still no joy. Anyone have any ideas to set up a share without having to use a login window for every user? cheers

Did you do teh same for the share and the NTFS security permission? You need to add anonymous for both.

Added the Anonymous Login and Everyone to both the Permissions and the Security (assuming this is the NTFS) sections. Personally I'm confused as hell about it. Thanks again Kryten

is the server part of a domain? If so take it out and put it into a workgroup.

I would create users accounts to secure your files to be honest.

File security isn't an issue in the environiment it's used in. Just basically need an open file server - no domain, just a workgroup. thanls for replies.
