    auto login to mapped drive

    i have a drive shared on my vista machine that i can access fine on my xp machine, problem is it asks for a password to login every time i reboot or after the computer has been running a while. i9 have reconnect at login checked, and i had this exact same setup running for the longest time without issue on another install of xp.

    any idea why it's having trouble holding onto the password?

    btw the login dialog no longer has an option to remember passwords, i have a feeling this is my main problem. in my old xp install i had a check box to remember the login ino.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Is this an XP Pro machine? If so, you should be able to go to the Control Panel->User account-><your account>, and at the top left you should see a link for Manage my network passwords. Click it, pick Add and enter the requisite information.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    thanks for the reply, still doesn't seem to be working, i actually had the profile in there for my share already, tried deleting it and entering it manually and still a no go.

    just doesn't want to remember the password.

    could have sworn there used to be a check box to allow xp to take care of managing passwords.

    edit: after looking at the login box that pops up it says, Incorrect password or unknown username for:

    but then i enter the password and it connects fine.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Normally, that check box is there. Simple files sharing unchecked?

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    yes simple file sharing is off. and to answer an earlier question this is xp pro.

    i noticed i was using the computers name for login, so i switched to the computers ip instead and still no go. i thought for sure that'd work, as that's how i usually set up my shares, all based on the ip address.

    i still needed to login when i restarted though.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Of course, the easiest way would be to have a common user name & password on each machine.....

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    way ahead of you there. created accounts named "share" on both machines both using the same password.

    thing is this is new, i don't know what's different about this xp install compared to myold one, other than my last install was over 2 years old. you'd think i would have had this problem on that install and not tis one.

    wish i could figure out where that check box went.

    my vista machine has no problem logging into the share on the xp machine.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    hmm, so far i've also tried adding both machines to the same named work group.

    tried upping the number of simultaneous connections for the share and no go there either.

    just cannot figure this out.

    googling didn't find me anything to fix it, but i did find some people having similar problems.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Workgroup & number of connections shouldn't affect whether you get the checkbox or not.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    What am I missing? If you have a common user name and password, it shouldn't prompt you for a password.

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    Just having a common user name & password wouldn't be enough. You would need to logon to the client machine using the user name so that it would pass that information to the host when you try to connect. Note that if you had the logon password check box this wouldn't be necessary...

    Re: auto login to mapped drive

    ??

    mapping the drive i select connect as a different user, i then use "192.168.1.140\share" as my login. the ip is the ip of the vista machine.

    i can connect to the drive just fine, but i always have to enter the password after a restart or a long uptime.

    not sure what you mean by logging onto the client machine. i assume that's what i'd be doing by displaying the contents of the mapped drive.
