Grant permissions to users in Windows XP workgroup network
Posted on 2005-04-18
I need to setup a network in windows XP pro environment for tomorrow and I've been working hard hard, I don't have to much time to research..please somebody can help me!!!!!!....
Here what I did so far..
I already configured a workgroup (5 computers, 1 of this is going to be the main one!!(not running windows 200 server just windows xp pro))
I CAN see all workgroup computers in network neighborhood.Simple file sharing is turned OFF, Permissions are visible, but when I go to ADD the user on the main machine that contains the principal share, I should be able to click on the location button, see their machine and then add them as a user on this shared folder, but it doesn't let me....I already read something about if I don't have a domain controller I won't be able to..but could somebody give any other solution????. Please!!!!
