It really works the other way around, you on your machine, or
they on their machine, allow Guest. It is not that you let your
Guest go out visiting. One just enables the Guest account after
being careful of what is being shared that it may "visit".
If you are using Windows XP you should post into the a
microsoft.public.windowsxp.* newsgroup and say which version
of XP you have.

Hi Lecter,

Thanks for posting!

Based on the description, you want to know how to let guest account to
visit neighbor in LAN. Due to the lack of information, please help me know
if you want to know how to let standard user of Windows XP visit the
computer the neighbor in peer to peer LAN network without prompting user
account and credential? If I am off base, Please feel free to let me know
your specific scenario. Are you using Domain and is there any error when
you access neighbor?

According to my understanding, I would like to provide you with the
following information for your reference:

1. To enable the Guest Account.

2. To set up User Accounts in the Local Accounts Database

Use the User Manager tool to set up user accounts in the local accounts
database of the computer that you are attempting to connect to. These user
accounts need to contain the same logon information (user name and
password) that is used when a user logs on to his or her computer.

For more detailed information, please refer to the following article, it
also applies to Windows XP.
Prompted for Password When Connecting to Windows NT
http://support.microsoft.com/?id=139592

If there is anything that is unclear, please feel free to let me know.

Thanks & Regards,

Jason Tan

Thanks Abell, Thanks Tan
My scenario is that 14 Windows XP SP2 computers under a peer-to-peer
LAN, and no server no domain,(workgroup, of course ).
the limited accounts can visit the neighbors freely.
guest account enabled
I have add guest account to
Computer Configuration\Windows Settings\Security Settings\Local
Policies\User Rights Assignment\Access this computer from the network
but the guest still failed to visit the neighbor!
The website of ms said that Access this computer from the
network"Determines which users and groups are allowed to connect to
the computer over the network."

Also, the shares visited and their underlying storage if NTFS both
need to allow Guest, or something that include it.

Guest needs to be enabled on the visit-to computer, and unless you change
things it will already be configured to allow access over the network.
It sounds like you are trying to configure Guest on the visit-from computer.
