Rights using RAS
Posted on 1997-08-06
Can someone explain to me how the accounts and user rights work when using RAS?
I have an NT 4 Server running RAS. I want to be able to have a client call this computer and be able to log on and gain access to only a single directory on the server. No other services should be available to this client form my server unless I specifically grant them.
I would create that directory on my server in advance and give it a share name. I would create a user on my server and would assign a user name and password.
The usual client would be a Win 95 machine and would probably be part of another workgroup or domain. I won't have access to the client username or password that was used to gain access to his workgroup or domain. The client should use the user name and password I have created on my server.
I would guess there are different ways to accomplish this, so I'd like to know all the ramifications of the various options.
