I have 3 XP Pro computers in a network workgroup. I want to limit access to certain folders.
Posted on 2004-04-20
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?
