Password protection on, but no password required

Posted: 01-05-2009, 04:44 PM

I'm running two new Dell desktops, both with Vista Business. They ar
communicating with one another too well. They can both access on
another's public folders, and I have shared a document folder on on
computer. That is great

The problem is that in the Network and Sharing Center I have passwor
protected sharing turned 'on' for both computers. However, when
access the other computer (either direction) no password or user name i
required. I am running McAfee Total Protection Service as the firewall

I want the user name and password requirement which is why I have i
turned on. I cannot figure out why both computers are acting as if tha
setting were turned 'off.' Is there another setting somewhere that i
overriding the password protection in Network and Sharing Center? Othe
thoughts? I appreciate any help

Is it possible you logon both computer using the same the account, for
example Administrator? Or check if you have enable guest account on both
computers.

Thank you for the help, Robert. I do appreciate it. I managed to solv
the problem by exploring the options that you noted. I had managed t
save the user names and passwords in the computers so that when
connected from one computer to another it went right in without agai
prompting for name/password. I found it while in the user accoun
section. I had a feeling it was something bone-headed and it was. Bu
I appreciate your help. I'll now be putting tail between my legs an
scurrying off . . .

Bob, that is NOT me.
He is my resident spoofer.
Here are his and my posting details.

..
That "Mick Murphy" is just a spoofer; just ignore it.
It hates that!
It was using AIOE, but that is finished, so it is using a Hotmail account,
to sign into the MS servers here.
It has been spoofing me for months. I’ve even considered it might be NASS.

Here are the posting details of "it" and myself.
I think you will see the difference; and "it" joined here on the 5th, Jan,
2009!!!!!!!

Stop Confusing Users and helpers here you Spoofer. I'm the real one and I
chnaged my signature to let every one know the real Mick Murphy, go and get
yourself a live Scum bag.
I think that spoofer may be NASS, Leonard and their friend Gerry, they don't
like me because i always uncover their bad a dvice to users here!
Sorry Bob L for the confusion and to the OP. Ignore this Troll Impersonator
and his co-friends.

Milton is NOT a city.
And there are NO provinces in Australia.
You are a laughed at LOSER!

If you are going to lie, get your facts right, clown.
