I have the following problem accessing a samba share from a windows pc. The samba share is meant to be accessible without the user having to enter a username or password. It works if the pc with the samba share is in a domain.
If the pc with the samba share is connected point to point to a windows pc, then a username/password is required on the windows pc. To make it more interesting, this is not always the case, for some pcs the password is required, for others not.
So my question is: Why do I sometimes need to enter a password when I want to access the samba share via a point to point connection?
