Anonymous access to a folder over a network in Windows XP

Purpose: to share a folder without the need to enter a username / password.

Available equipment: A computer with OEM Windows XP Pro SP3 + all Windows updates that are available today.

What has been done:
1. Guest account is enabled. She has been given an empty password
2. The Guest account has been removed from Gpedit.msc -> Computer Configuration - Windows Configuration - Security Settings - Local Policies - User Rights Assignment - Denied access to the computer over the network .
3. Added Guest account in Gpedit.msc -> Computer Configuration - Windows Configuration - Security Settings - Local Policies - Assignment of User Rights - Access to the computer from the network.
4. Service "Windows Firewall" disabled .
5. Gpedit.msc -> Computer Configuration - Windows Configuration - Security Settings - Local Policies - Network Access: Sharing and security model for local accounts - Guest .
6. Gpedit.msc - Computer Configuration - Windows Settings - Security Settings - Local Policies - Security Options - Restrict the use of an empty password only for console login. - Disabled
7. Disabled simple file and folder sharing
8. Open access to the D:\Scan folder With permissions Everyone - All
9. Ntfs rights to the Scan folder are the same as in step 8.
10. Policy setting Network access: Do not allow enumeration of SAM accounts and shares by anonymous users - "Disabled".
11. The computer is restarted

Result: When you try to log in to \\\ from a neighboring computer, it asks for a login and password. Which, in my opinion, should not be.
Please help, otherwise I have already broken my head.

Understood. The problem was that on the computer from which they accessed the share, the password for the user Guest was not empty

Do not open the guest - this is fraught with hemorrhoids.
Simply specify the user from the machine from which you will enter the ball.
I'm even better - ftp raise. You will work with files, not watch movies.

It seems to me easier and safer to do it through the NetScan software supplied with the MFP.
The software is installed on the workstation. In the settings, it is enough to enter the ip of the device on which you want to scan, an arbitrary workstation id and a pin code (optional). Then, on the device, select the Network Scan scanning mode and specify the id of the desired station. The document after scanning appears in a directory specially set for this.

Um. I think you've made it harder. As far as I remember, anonymous access is enabled by default (or no option). If simple access is enabled, then there should not be any prompt for a password.

Or maybe the username in the MFP should be specified in the form domain\user? =) it works for me, though a brother.
