Q

How do I prevent peer computers from having to log in every time they access a shared drive?

I have three computers that are peers, and I am sharing folders in Windows 2000. How do I prevent them from having to log in every time they try to access a shared folder on their peer?
When they are prompted to logon, there should be a checkbox that requests whether to retain the logon credentials for future use. You can also pre-map drives to the shares in a local group policy or logon script.
