I have a new client with windows 2003. Right now they have everyone set up with a static IP with DNS pointing to the server. They have no permissions right now and everyone that logins in gets full permissions. They have some shared programs and folders that they would like to be secure. They have field techs that come in and connect every morning and they don't want them to be able to access everything on the server.  I will create a new user (field tech) and set permissions on the folders being shared where they aren't allowed access. Will they still be able to see the folder? or will it not even show up? Also is there anything i am missing?

On Windows, if you permission folders within a share to stop people having access to them, the use will still see the folder, but get "access denied" when they try to open it.

On Netware the user will not even see the folder.

This is because the windows network OS does not process the users permission before presenting the list of folders, netware does.

This might be a little complicated but here's my problem. I have a subfolder in a folder that only people in the IT dept can access.  The problem is, I want to allow one specific user to access that subfolder but that user is not apart of the IT dept.  Without sharing the folder can I give access to that user by adding him under the security permissions?
