To access a shared folder a user needs the Log on over
the network (or similar wording) user right.
This is granted in the User Rights section of group policy
(in the computer tree of settings).
This is usually granted to a group that is minimally
sufficient to cover the accounts that should be allowed
the logon type 3 (network) login right.
You may want to remember to readjust the share and
NTFS permissions if you have loosened them trying to
get this working.
