Cannot connect to NT 2000 Pro SharesLocked
I have deployed some new 2000 Professional laptops to a field office. The laptops were setup on the corporate network and therefore the users logon to their local machine using their corporate network ID and password. I prefer to leave the configuration this way rather than switch to a workgroup as they will be connected to the corporate lan via a vpn connection at some point in the near future. Also the field office users are at the corporate site frequently.
The field office has a hub and have hooked their computers together hoping to share files and printers. They can see one anothers shares but are asked for a username and password when they try to connect. The only username and password that works is the one associated with the computer they are connecting to, even the administrator can not connect to the share. The file system is still FAT. Permissions are granted to everyone, local users and authenticated users. Is there a way to authenticate other corporate domain users at the field office in this field office peer-to-peer connection (i.e. local user = domain\domainusername)????
