This has been discussed many times before, though generally in the context of
ssh. Anyway, the short answer is that you cannot get access to shares that
are not publicly accessible without providing a password. Without the
password, Windows user authentication doesn't happen so Windows won't give
you access to shares that are user-restricted. You'll have to provide the
password or open up your shares to all users.
