I have a share for Everyone on a computer in a domain and I'm trying to access it from a local user on a non-domain computer. It prompts for password.
First, I followed this instruction: http://techtonis.wordpress.com/2012/09/13/windows-file-share-with-anonymous-logonaccess/ , tweaked these:
Network access: Let Everyone permissions apply to anonymous users: enabled
Network access: Shares that can be accessed anonymously: '\\MYHOST\share'
It didn't help. Then I REVERTED those settings back and instead did 2 things:
deny access to this computer from the network: ''
enabled Guest account.
Now it works, but can the enabled Guest do any harm now?
