Hi,
I want to create a workgroup of 6 systems having XP installed. 2 of them just have internet access through proxy setting and 1 of them is registered on domain. Other 3 systems don't have internet or domain access.
Is it possible to create workgroup of these systems independently (no contact with domain) ?, so they can share printer and files with each other only. And above setting remains the same.( i.e; 2 systems remains connected to internet, and 1 remains on domain.

Please help.

A computer cannot be simultaneously part of a domain and a workstation.

Yes, but when you've got to add the users to the local users and give them permissions to resources. Or you may enable guest account, but this is a large hole in security. Maybe the computer connected to the domain cannot browse the workgroup (although I don't think so), but it will still access the resources from the other systems using a local account.

Give permission to shares for the new created user accounts. The user account you created must have the same password as the one in the computer they log in. Don't use blank passwords.

I have to know what message you get when connecting.

Run ipconfig/all on two computers: one in domain and other in workgroup.
