    We are in a WIN 2003 R2 enivronment, stand alone server non-active directory
    (this is not a domain controller), workgroups are set the same on the server
    and client. Having difficutly mapping drives from a WIndows XP Pro SP2
    machine. Can ping the server by name and by IP. When attempting to access a
    shared folded, file, printer or the server we are prompted for a username and
    password which is typical. Enter any user name and password, including the
    machine administrator account and access is not allowed. No apparent entries
    in the even logs. Just continually prompted for a username and password.
    Verified that nothing has been set to deny in the GPO.
