How To Allow Network Access with Blank Passwords

Allowing Network Access with Blank Passwords

Although you can log in locally without a password, by default, WindowsXP Pro does not allow network users to access the computer without a password. Typically you will receive an Unknown error 31 if this is the case.

To change this setting:

1. Run gpedit.msc

2. Go to Computer Configuration / Windows Settings / Security Settings / Local Policies / Security Options

3. Double click on Accounts: Limit local account use of blank passwords to console login only

4. Disable that option
