    I have several computers in my network that are not part of a domain, however i have a data server that is part of a domain. I have mapped drives from the computers to the data sever no issues. However, for the first time, i set “everyone” permissions to one folder, when i try to map to it, it asks me for a password. I don’t have a username for these specific computer, i’m sure i could use mine, but would like to know why this is happening?
