Hi,

I have setup a home network using a cross cable, here is my config

computer1
192.168.0.1
windows 2000, sp3
password: something

computer2
192.168.0.2
windows 2000, sp1
password: [no password set on this pc]

What I want is that computer2, be not able to access computer1 normally, the only thing that computer2 can access will be a folder. Now how do I do this.

Since, I dont want computer1 to reveal its password to the user on computer2, so simple file sharing is not useful, as I have to goto computer2 physically and type my password there so that it may access the shared folder on computer1.

Bottom line: How to share only a folder in between two computers?

p.s. computer1 is an Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) server, and computer2 is an ICS client too. Though I dont think it has got anything to do with my problem, but just in case.

Thanks.

On PC 1 just right click on the folder you want to share and click on Sharing... then choose Share this Folder.  Name the Share and add a comment if you wish.  Then from there just set the permissions to Everyone so PC 2 doesn't need a password to access the folder.

Oh by the way, you should upgrade both computers to Service Pack 4... that will narrow the possibility of connection problems if there were to be some.

Simple file sharing is what you want.  It will give unrestricted access to that folder to all clients on the network (only 1 other pc in your case) without any password required.

LimeSMJ's suggestion will work too.
