Networking problem on win2k
gReg Nov-29-00 05:23 PM
i'm connected to pretty large lan (about 100 users divided into 3 4 groups) and i have some problems
1)Is it possible to share some folders in the network without login on my comp (without requiring password)- at the moment everyone who wants to see my shared resources is asked for password.
2) the strange thing is that when i launch the system at first i see only my group
after 5 minuts second one, it takes 20-30 minuts before i can explore whole lan

tnx for any help

ps sorry for my poor english

One must login into Windows (I presume your are running some version of Windows?) or the Client for Microsoft Networks to network on a Microsoft network. Once logged into a peer-to-peer workgroup, one does not have to specify a password to access a shared resource unless it is password-protected by the owner of that resource. Open the Windows Explorer, right-click the shared drive, etc. in question, Properties, Sharing and see if you have password access implemented.

I would suggest talking to the person in charge of your network. He or she may have a quick answer to your problem. Whereas I would have to know much more about your network to answer it. Larry
