Local Security Policy > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options
At the top of the list is "Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console logon only"

This setting was enabled by default in Windows XP as well. So in other words you must have disabled this value on Windows XP to be able to use blank passwords from the network.

I DO NOT recommended disabling this setting.
