Windows share requires authentication only when accessed locally

ng flag

I have a Windows server (Server_1, that has a network share (filesshare). The share permissions are "Full control" for "Everyone". This server also has a CNAME (file_server_alias). Any other machine on the network can access this share using any of the following UNC paths:




This is all expected and working fine.

However if you are logged onto Server_1 and try to access it's share only these ways work:



When trying to access the share through the CNAME it asks for network credentials and will not work no matter the logins provided.

Why is this not possible?
