Windows does not support this functionality from the machine serving the file share.

You can only do this by changing an option in the registry ON THE CLIENT or by sharing the file with webservices and enforcing session timeouts.

It is possible to disconnect their session and force them to re-authenticate - BUT the client will almost certainly have cached the credentials locally anyway so they will not be asked for the passsword.
