Wide-Open Advanced Server Share?

» close window

The Question is:

I would like to connect users to a Pathworks Share without entering a password.
 Therefore I modified the accounts with the flag "/nopassword". Unfortunately
 they still have to enter the password when they logon!
Please help!

The Answer is :

  /nopassword should set the account with a blank password.  Depending
  on client type, the client might still be prompted for a password,
  however a blank password (just enter a return) should be accepted.
  If that is not your observation, it is possible that you have found
  a bug and -- if so -- you should contact the customer support center
  Please realize that many active Microsoft Windows viruses specifically
  seek these open shares as an infection transmission mechanism.
