	You should use the Local Administrator for that type of
access, I have seen a lot of variations on that subject, but
usually, the Administrator of the workstation always work.

	You can find more information at Microsoft website and
MSDN, not that you are going to find lots of infinite information,
but at least a few tips. ;)

	And you don't need special setup, just point to the
workstation and share and give the right credentials.
