securing shares with dedicated user-account

hello

I'm securing my home network (2 desktops, 1 notebook) and have 2 questions:
1. To share some folders between the computers, I decided to create an user-account with the same name & password on each computer. Which is the best group to put this user in? (the user doesn't have to log on locally. only remote reading/writing data).
2. Where can I show all shared (preferrably also the hidden ones with the $-sign at the end) folders/printers of a local computer?

thank you,
saimen

that should work with the same username and password on each computer, they don't have to be an administrator on the local computer, just a standard user probably, that is how i had it set up here and it worked fine. If you want, you can make it so they can't log on locally thrugh the local security policy. (under administrative tools in control panel, under 'user rights assignment' go to 'deny login locally' and you can add the name)

To view all shares, right click my computer, go to manage, under system tools, go to shared folders, and go to shares...

Good luck, hope this helps...
