I have 2 windows 7 ultimate pc's on a network. Both are in WORKGROUP. When I try to connect to one from the other by \\computername\c$ it prompts me for a login and password. No matter what I enter I get an error that I don't have permission. Under the Home/Work profile I checked the option that says don't prompt for password. Any ideas?
I used the net user command and I added a password to the administrator account. when i use administrator as the login name it works without a problem. not sure why the other accounts i use didn't work since they are listed as administrators.
ijack is right - you need to use an account with exactly the same NAME. It's the name/password combination that allows the automatic login on a remote system, not the privileges the account has. You only need the privileges because you're accessing a share which requires them, but you need the name to match in order to get the automatic login.
