How to restrict users on a Y2K network
Posted on 2003-02-19
I have networked my computer with my brother-in-law so that his family can have access to my music, movies and games, but am uneasy about it because it appears that they can move files and delete. When I try to restrict access to modify it automatically selects to deny read & execute, list folders contents, read and write. What I am trying to do is to protect my file structure and still share the contents. I do have a firewall "Tiny Personal Firewall" but am new to both networking and the use of firewalls. I also have a built in firewall on my Belkin "4-port Cable/DSL Gateway Router", but the options that I find in the manual offer sharing as an all or nothing arrangement too.
Can I set it up so that they can look, listen and play but not change anything in my files on my end?
NOTE: Both computers are Windows 2000. I am the Administrator and he is a user in workgroup.
