Windows 7: Mapping network drives

Mapping network drives

I'm having a mapping problem. I have a Windows 2003 server in the workgroup group. My Windows 7 PC is in a domain. I'd like to share files between the domain and workgroup. Most of the time i can't see the Windows 2003 server. When I am able to, it asks for a username and password. I put it in but it says it's invalid. How can I get a PC in a domain to talk to the Server in the workgroup group?

Welcome to Seven Forums!

A PC can't be a member of a Domain and a Workgroup a the same time. They're mutually exclusive.

You should however be able to manually map a drive from the Windows 7 PC. You'll need to use the fully qualified name (FQN)of the share on the server.

One thing you'll need to so is make sure the Windows 7 machine has Network Discovery enabled. Also take a look at Password Protected Sharing, you may need to disable that.
