I want to help a friend who has a non profit organization to help people with Disabilities find employment.  He wants a server, but enabling file sharing with his network would do the same and just creating an icon for the drive on Lab1 for Lab2,3,4 etc.... for example.

 

we do it now, but it asks for the system credentials.  Would he have to call verizon FIOS or the company he has leases his laser printer from?

 

How can I do it?  Just want to help.

You have enabled File Sharing but it asks for credentials when you try to access from PCx to files on PCy?

 

Are the computers the same OS (Windows 7 by example)?

Check the Network Center and the homegroup must not have a password set. 

Please also check if PCx has the same homegroup as PCy.

If you want to Keep password protected sharing enabled to controll file sharing you can Mapp a network drive to the Shared folder on the other computer and assign the credentials using "Connect Using Different Credentials". 

 

  1. Open Windows Explorer (Hold the windows key and press "E")
  2. right click on Computer 
  3. Select mapp network drive
  4. Select a drive letter
  5. Locate the Network Share
  6. Assign The username and password with privileges to access the folder using computername\username
  7. Check Save
