Network Sharing in Windows Seven





jilbs
Does anybody knows how to do a network share in windows seven which will allow anonymous login?

I made a share on the network and I set everyone for the permission and security but when other computers connected to the network access it, it is asking for a password.

Got any ideas?

In Windows networking, unless you run a domain server, "everyone" generally refers only to the users on that particular computer - not those connecting via the network. Unless a username and password is specified by these other computers, Windows assigns them the same permissions as "guest".

So simply add the appropriate permission for both "guest" and "guests" and all should be working for you. Smile

Also, in Windows 7, you'll need to do the following:

Open the "Network and Sharing Center"
Click "Change advanced sharing settings" from the menu on the left
Scroll down to "Password protected sharing" and select "Turn off password protected sharing"

Smile

Not a problem - glad I could help!

It's just a shame that it's much more complicated than in previous Windows versions... waste of time really! haha

you can also share just like on Operation System Windows Xp.

Perhaps re-read the contents of the topic above - you would have seen the differences between network sharing for Windows XP and Windows Seven. While the right-click->properties options remain similar, additional steps are required to activate the feature, which was already discussed above.
