I created a shared folder on one of my computer. I do not have a password on this computer.

When I try to access this folder from one of my other computer: I type "username:" "Mike"
"password:" blank..

It tells me in a prompt that blank passwords are not allowed. How can I set it so I do not need a password?

Before I wiped the system it worked fine this way...

That was insanely easy. Thanks, I didn't think it would be a Security Policy..
