Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium
I recently bought a personal laptop that I'd like to use at work. It came with Windows 7 Home Premium installed and because of that, I can't join it to the Windows Server 2003 domain we have. I don't really need to print or any of the other things that go with being on the domain, I just need access to a few key folders. Is there any way to access shares on the server with Win 7 Home?

✔ Best Answer
Your IT people should be able to advise you. Most companies are not happy with the connection of non-company computers to their networks until they have had a chance to vet them.

I am the IT people :) Also, I was able to figure it out. I was trying to connect to the actual domain name, but when I put in the IP address for the server instead it popped up asking for credentials and it all worked fine. Accessing the server shares just fine now!
