My computer name is EVOLUTION. Sharing a folder in XP was very easy, just right click, share, and that's it.

On my other computers, if i wanted to connect to a folder, i would just type this into the run dialog:

\\EVOLUTION\Pictures
\\EVOLUTION\Pictures 2
\\EVOLUTION\Pictures 3

Etc, and it worked fine.

However now when i share a folder in Vista, other clients on my network cannot connect to:

\\EVOLUTION\Pictures 2
\\EVOLUTION\Pictures 3

Instead of actually going to folder #2 and #3, they get sent to

\\EVOLUTION\Pictures

Why is this? The only way i can fix it is by renaming the folders to "Pictures_2" and "Pictures_3"...

Also, can i completely skip clients having to log in with a guest account? Can't clients on my network go straight to the folder, without ever being presented with a log in box?

Thanks.

P.S.

I am using Vista Ultimate x64.
