Enabling the Guest Account

By default, the guest account is disabled. For workgroups that have Windows 95 and Windows 98 client computers, enabling the guest account is the quickest way to provide access to resources on a server. By enabling the guest account, however, any user connected to the network will have access to resources on the server. An alternative is to create a user account for every user on the network.

To enable the guest account

  1. On the primary navigation bar, choose Users.
  2. Choose Local Users.
  3. In the Name column, select Guest.
  4. In the Tasks list, choose Properties.
  5. On the General tab, clear the Disable this user account check box.
  6. Choose OK.
