Peculiar Issue

Discussion in 'MCSA' started by Adam J. Olson, Nov 9, 2003.

  1. I have a simple network between two computers both Windows 2000 one a
    desktop and one a laptop. When I connect to the shares from either to
    either it is asking me for a password and a username, when I enter my logon
    name and password I get access. I have never seen this at school or work,
    both networked environments. What is causing it to request a password?

    Sup Adam,

    I think what is happening is when you are at work or
    school, your computers are connected to a server or
    workgroup and all the computers have already been
    authenticated.

    When you connect two computers for the first time,
    authentication is required. After that is done, you won't
    see the log on screen pop up again, unless you shutdown
    both computers and try to access the shares again.

    I hope i helped to answer your question. If what i just
    said is wrong, please correct me. I don't like to give out
    false information haha.

    aloha!

    Thanks all-
    I realize that I wasn't thinking. I realize that the two computers were set
    up in a workgroup network so I installed an eval copy of 2000 advanced
    server ran dcpromo, installed active directory and voila now I have a domain
    which is what I wanted in the first place.

    In a workgroup environment (Win2k), to not be asked for
    username & password to access shares (though I don't
    recommended this), both computers need to have the same
    username & password.

    Hope this works!

    Are they in the same workgroup/domain? How do you have the
    Rights setup. Start at the beginning and work your way
    through it. You will find it very quickly.
