Shared Folder asking to Login

Specs: XP Pro, --

I've got a share on one XP Pro Machine, and around 8 client PCs that need to access that share.

For some reason or other, when trying to access the share from a Client PC, a Login is requsted. I can login as Admin when that login is requested and the Client PC is fine, untill they restart I have to log them back in again.

Is there a way to stop it asking to login and simply allow them to login?

You should be able to map the drive to the other PCs, so they are seen in my computer, if you haven't done that already. You may have to add the other 8 users to the user list on your so called file server.

Hi, all the Client PC's user name and password is user to keep things simple.

i'm sure i've added user to the list, but to double check, can you give me some instructions to do so?

Control panel, admin tools, computer management, users and groups, users.

File, new user if it's not there.
