How to remove passwd cache

By bubloo ·
Dear All

I am having windows workgroup setup in my office and i shared one folder in each pc for data communication. After booting the PC while accessing the shared folder it's asking passwd for that shared folder. If i try to open the same shared folder again it's not asking passwd. I want to give passwd to access the shared folder eachtime when i try to access. Kindly provide me the solution.

Thanks in advance

Hi Sakti

What OS are you using? If you are using Win98 with no security then you simply need to clear any password information from the Share dialog box, or if your workgroup is set up so that each user is required to enter a Username and Password each time they log on then you need to manually add only those users you want to grant access to.

If you are setting up an Active Directory domain then you need to make sure that each computer and user can be authenticated on the domain controller, and that each share contains a list of users with appropriate permissions set. If each user/computer is not able to be authenticated you will be prompted with a dialog box asking for a password.

Check your event logs for any messages that may give you a better idea of what is happening then post a reply.
