How to limit shared folder access to logged in user?
Posted on 2004-08-18
School situation: all students have their login name, password, personal folder on the server, personal profile. During a test, all students login with their proper user name. Each of them access his/her own personal folder. But, if you know the username/password of another student, you can also access his/her personal folder, and so it is difficult to copy his/her answers on the test. Nice for collaboration purposes (only close friends exchanhe usernames/passwords), but the teacher can no longer rely on the results...
So, is it possible to limit the access to a shared folder to the logged in user, and to deny access to another user, who is logged in with his/her username/password, and access the shared folder using the username/password of somebody else? On first sight, this cannot be done, because a logged in user accesses his/her own personal folder by the mean of the sharing way of security.
Maybe using Group Policies? I am not that familiar with GPE...
Thx in advance,
