I am trying to share a folder on a network. I dont want just anyboy to have access to even read or list contents to this folder. I set all the Network and NTFS permissions, however, on other computers, it just says access denied. What I want, is when you navigate to the shared folder and open it, the login dialog box pops up, and if you have the appropriate passwords, it will give access. What do I have to do to allow login to that shared folder?
The compure sharing is XP Pro, the one trying to access is XP Home. I got it to work fine on 2K, but won't allow login on XP

Thanks in advance

Hi Steveo225 :)

Folder permissions don't work in that manner.  No login box will appear to authenticate users, if a user has permissions then the user will be granted access to that folder, what type of access is dictated by what you have granted (read, write etc).  If a user does not have access to the shared folder the user will get an Access Denied message.  Here is a really good link on sharing folders:

Remember there is a difference between SHARE permissions and FOLDER permissions. Do you have SHARE permissions set to Everyone? I believe if you want to prompt the user for a login you need to use the SHARE permissions to accomplish that. FOLDER (NTFS file) permissions will only lock out the user based on their existing logon credentials.
