Windows 7: Guest network share w/out password

17 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Guest network share w/out password


I was wondering if there is a way to set up a share that anyone on the local network can access without a password. It would also be useful if this were read-only.

I have tried setting up sharing between my two Windows 7 machines but it keeps asking for a password, even if I share with "Everyone". I have tried enabling or disabling the guest account on the "server" machine, it doesn't make any difference.

Thanks, Joe
