Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have gone through all topics specified on Superuser. But none of the information I've found works for me.

My problem is when connecting to a Windows 2000 Server, a security window appears asking for a network password. The funny this is that I didn't configure such a password.

The client I am trying to connect to the server from is a Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit laptop.

How do you try to connect? As far as I know there have to be group permissions including your use or an anyone user to access the server without using a password. If you use Remote-Desktop, you will always need a password, if you don't set a passwd in this case, you won't be able to connect.

If are attempting to connect via Remote Desktop, you will need a password. Blank passwords are not allowed. Set a password on your Windows 2000 Server and then attempt to connect, it will go through as expected.
