It is a Windows File Sharing server using the standard Windows File Sharing service available on all copies of Windows.
This thread is old, however the solution was to do nothing, as the standard Windows File Sharing Guest permissions (or the simple allowing of read) allowed users to perform everything I had wanted on my server.
I can't explain how and I don't know why but each PC had access to their own files and could manipulate them: Renaming, deleting, and of course they had full read access and write access to the allowed directories.
I did not need to set anything additional up. It's a miracle.
However, when utilizing the Guest account through IIS FTP, this was not the case.
I don't know why, but it isn't necessary considering the FTP is a fallback in case the Windows File Sharing wasn't available.
P.S: Your excessive use of punctuation is rather frustrating to read.
