    All workstations are running Windows 2000 w/SP4

    I am currently looking for the best alternative method of configuring a secure network when we are out in the field. We do not have a domain currently setup in our office as we are a using Netware as our authenicating server and a Win2K Server for windows based applications.

    Currently when in the field we have shares with the Guest account enabled so other users in the field can access a specific folder on each machine without having to enter any logon info or password. I was wondering if anyone knows of any other methods of authenicating to another machine (Windows 2000) without getting a prompt for a user name and password? I realize I can setup a user account for each staff member on every machine, however when a user changes their password on their local machine it will have to be updated on every machine in the field.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    You have Windows 2000 Server, so just make it a domain controller, if the user changes his/her password, it replecates through every computer. And also set up a VPN Server for users to gain access to the domain from the field.
