Did you 'want' it to ask for password? Or are you aksking how to get rid of the password prompt?
Yes I am trying to stop it from asking for a password.
Assuming you have the password protected options turned off in the Advanced Sharing settings.
You should check the time and date
in Windows and make sure they match the other computers in your network. The time and date needs to be in sync on all network machines.
If they are off by too much you will get the prompt and sharing won't work correctly, not to mention Windows updates won't work right.
This is a common problem as you can see in the Technet link below, read about half way down the page. http://social.technet.microsoft.com/...5-9ec78a037f4c
Thanks, I syncronized the clocks even though they were only 2 seconds off. I have ensured Ipv6 is enabled, but its not working still.
I would like to add that this worked perfectly for months, it's only just stopped.
The computer I am using is windows seven premium x64 and the computer I am trying to connect to is the same OS.
Its got me stumped.
