XP file sharing permission beyond drag and drop to Shared Folder
Posted on 2003-04-01
I have 2 machines running XP, one a laptop, I'll call it Machine(1), and the other a desktop, Machine (2). Machine (1) is set to connect to a Domain when I'm at work, and a small office/home network when I'm at home. Machine (2) is set to connect to a small office/home network only. (1) will let me set file sharing permisions for user/group by folder, (2) only has simple file sharing option (Drag Folder to Shared Folder) available. How do I get the same level of conrol from Machine (2) over my user accounts as Machine (1)?
Note: I do know about setting local account resticions to specific levels, ie power user, guest accounts, etc. but it doesn't appear that these can be set beyond what's already built in.
