I have three computers (A, B & C) in a workgroup (not domain) called office.  All are running Windows XP Pro.  All have "use simple file sharing" unchecked under Windows Explorer.

Computers B & C print to a shared HP printer that is physically connected to computer A.

I want to limit Computer-C from accessing any folders on Computer-A and Computer-B.

I have created a "group" on Computer-A called "mygroup", with members UserName-1 and UserName-2 (Username-3 is not a member of the group).

I have a shared folder on Computer-A called "Billing" and have limited access to members of "mygroup".

So, in theory, only UserName-1 and UserName-2, have access to the "Billing" folder.

Am I correct in setting this up?

Thank you.

Yes, as far as UserName-3 isn't member of the local admin group on computer-a and computer-b

But remember you didn't limit access from computer-c to the other computers, you limit's UserName-3 access to the other computers.
