Default NETWORKING ON XP professional

I setup networking with 2 PCs. A PC user account name is 'RMS00' and the
other PC user account name is 'RMS11' with no password. I have no problem to
share files between two PCs, but I have to type in user name either RMS00 or
RMS11 once at the power up when I want to look the other PC's file. After
first file is looked, PC does not ask to type the the other PC's user name.
How can I set up a network without asking user name for other PC when a PC
is powered up?

Accounts without passwords is just plain and simply a terribly bad idea,
you should password protect your accounts even if your password is the
most simple one! Running without passwords is just an invitation for
trouble, some functions expect to see passwords and when none are
present it can cause some strange or baffling problems at times.

If you do not want to be challenged for credentials just create
identical accounts on each machine (same name, same password) and log on
to the machines with these same accounts.

Try setting folder's sharing to everyone. If this doesn't work also set
folder's right to everyone.
