network share requesting user name and password when accessed from domain computer logged with different user
Posted on 2004-10-27
I need some help on the following issues:
a) would like selected users on a domain (w2k server) to be able to access specific shared folders on the server allthough the computer is logged with another user name.
As an example I would like Mike to go on John computer (currently logged in as John) and be able to access the \\server\mike folder (access restricted to Mike). The computer should display a UN/PASS box for authentication.
Is this possible?
b) if there is a solution for a), how can I force the computer to "forget" the authentication after a specific time on w2k clients?
The reason for this is that I have a couple "Mike" users who hop from one computer to the other checking on "John"'s work, but sometimes need access to their "Mike"'s protected folder.
Log-in and out every time simply is too slow and all John documents would be closed.
Thank you in advance
