WinXP Pro and file sharing

By marron ·
I am having problems with network computers getting access to the shared drives on my computer. Whenever a user tries to map my network drives they are prompted for a password on the "guest account" the usewrname is greyed out with only guest available. I have simple file sharing installed and can access all other computers across the network.

Any help you can give will be great.

Same problem accessing XP

by RobD. In reply to WinXP Pro and file sharin ...

Well, I have the same issue. Never had this problem with Win2K. I can access the 98 shares from XP just fine...but from 98, it prompts for a password, no username. I have simple sharing turned of, so that I can grant access to certains folders as read-only for certain people.
