Please review this..

Suppose your file sharing server is A , let other devices be named B, C , D ,E

1: Now when you turned off password ***** sharing B, C, D, E devices can access files from A

2: similarly, When you turn on password ***** sharing, B, C, D, E devices cannot access server A

Now tell me what you have to do with this

can't find the password ***** sharing server A

You can use the server profile username and password ***** sharing

Customer: replied 4 months ago.

Expert:  arsufi replied 4 months ago.

Sorry, this is where i am confused..

"how do I change a password ***** a network"

My Answer:

There is no way to change computer password ***** network

If you are referring to a computer, login to that computer directly, changing profile password ***** change the network password *****
