Hello, i have 4 pc in my LAN with all 4 accessing internet. it is a peer to peer environment all under workgroup "mshome"
i have shared some drives in all 4 of them. with full access to "everyone" so ACL n security is not all a problem here.
3 of them run on XP and one on windows 7.
2 of the PC's can access the shared network PC (and hence the shared drives) easily without being asked for user-name and password.
But here 2 machine keeps asking for user-name and password when trying to access other network pc's (forget shared drive, it ask for authentication while clicking on the pc name shown in my work-group)
None of the pc's have any sort of user-name and password. there is no such thing as password not even to the Administrative account which gets created by default.
I am puzzled why it keeps asking for user-name and password when trying to access other pc's,
all are pinging each other just fine. no issues of firewall of windows or of any AV.
