Since guest is disabled you have to use the account you created on that other machine and be sure to recreate the share AFTER the account was made.
Example. Let's say I want to share some directory. My usual login name is dotty. Now I create an account on the other machine for dotty then make sure it's password is same as the other machine. I create the share and then it works.
I have a windows XP Prof machine, and I have administrator privileges on it. I have disabled the guest account using the properties in Computer management.
When I try to use the resources on this machine from any other machine e.g \\computername\c$. I get a window with username and password. The username is always filled with \\computername\guest, and only password filed can be filled. I need to enter the username and pass but the ?guest? is always filled. I have gone and tried many different techniques but no luck; I always get the user name filled as guest.
Can someone please guide me on what to tweak in order for me to get a window where I can type username and password? I have even created a special account but I don?t get the opportunity to enter user name. All machines are workgroup.
