  Many friends upgrade their computers to Windows Server 2008 system environment in time. However I have not tasted the excitement brought to me by the new features of the Windows Server 2008 system but found that it is difficult to access the shared resources in the system environment. No it’s hard to let your network neighbor window search for the 'figure' of the Windows Server 2008 system host but when double-clicking the host icon with the mouse we sometimes find that the system needs to be authenticated. Obviously this is for those who don’t know. For friends who have access to the password they simply cannot access the target shared resources smoothly. In view of this we can use appropriate settings to allow Internet users to access the target shared resources in the Windows Server 2008 system smoothly without authentication.

  

Any LAN user who wants to access the target shared resources under the Windows Server 2008 system through the network the Windows Server 2008 system needs to be authenticated. If every time All users have to manually enter the user name and password and the efficiency of shared access is undoubtedly very low; in order to improve the efficiency of shared access we need to find a way to let the Windows Server 2008 system automatically authenticate the shared access user. To do this we can set up the Windows Server 2008 system as follows:

First enable the guest account; because the security performance of the Windows Server 2008 system is obviously stronger than that of the traditional operating system Therefore by default the system does not allow shared access users to access themselves as guest accounts. However in the intranet working environment most of the visitors of shared resources are trusted users. For these trusted users we can completely allow them to use guest accounts to access target shared resources in the Windows Server 2008 system. When enabling the guest account we can log in to the Windows Server 2008 system with the system administrator account first and click the 'Start'/'Programs'/'Server Manager' command in turn. In the pop-up Server Manager console window Click the 'Configuration'/'Local Users and Groups'/'Users' branch option in turn. In the right display area of ??the corresponding 'User' branch option we will see that the 'Guest' account is indeed in an inactive state; at this time Double-click the 'Guest' account with the mouse to open the 'Guest' account properties setting dialog box shown in Figure 1 uncheck the 'Account is disabled' checkbox and then click the 'OK' button so Windows Server 2008 The system allows any user to access the shared resources in the guest account.
