Simple Access to resorces?

By patrick ·
I am new to using win2000 pro and have set up a small home network using tcip and allowing full access or so i thought. from my win2000 station i can access all computers in the workgroup but they can not access my main computer that is using win 2000 pro. during setup i entered no passwords to allow full access to all shared resorces from any user on the net but when i try and access from another station win2000 wants a user name and password where did this come from and how do i stop it i have granted full permissions to all users and this does not seem to make any change still no access to my win2000 unit what am i doing wrong and how can i resolve this?

The resources can only be accessed through adding Active Directory Services in WIN2K, to locate and announce resources.Install Active Directory (AD)services

The previous reply seems nonsense to me IF I understand your environment well, but sometimes it's a bit vague.
* So you're using solely W2K Professional machines (no W2K Server). Or are there also W98 and NT workstations in place?
* And you want to use peer-to-peer networking, a so called 'workgroup'.

Basically the way you specify should just work, if all machines are part of the same workgroup. Try creating a normal user in the W2K Pro machines database, and use that userid/password when accessing from the remote machines - that should teach you more about where exactly things go wrong.

Hope this helps,

If you had not setup additional users on your WIN2K machine, they would not be able to log-on to your PC. Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Go to Users, and add the users that needs access to your PC. You could test it initially by logging in on the other machine using the same username on your Win2K PC.
