Trying to connect to a share on a network drive using 'exodusdocs'

I am trying to connect to a share on a network drive using only Windows Explorer (\exodusdocs). When I press enter it prompts for a password exodusguest. Is there any other way to do this other than mapping the share or by adding your user ID on the network's machine? I may want to connect to \exodusdocs several times a day using several different user IDs.
The best way to do this is to simply place the needed user IDs on the target system, or to better determine the need for using multiple user IDs in this context. Windows doesn't like it when a user tries to establish multiple shares to a target system with different user credentials on each one, because that has the hallmarks of spoofing. There's no way around this (as Microsoft likes to say, this feature is 'by design') since circumventing it is basically a violation of security.
