6 PC's in a WORKGROUP - can I block another Administrator from local shares but allow remote (internet) access through the shared line?
Posted on 2006-03-23
There are 6 PC's. All run XP. All are sharing the same one connection to the internet.
4 are "Users" granted permissions to certain folders on the local network.
2 users are Admins.
How can I completely block the other Admin from the local folders,
but still let him access the external internet on his own PC?
(basically so he can screw up his own system with pr0n and warez
but not the others!)?
The big problem is, he owns the laptop, so he MUST be an Admin,
just cannot take those rights away from him, sorry! But I want to
let him get on the external nternet and not mes with the other local
users accounts etc. Since he is in fact an Admin this sounds impossible
Its just a normal home setup with a dad as admin and his eldest son
also an admin. If you ask me, he should control his son and tell him
he can either have an "User" account and not have any access to
the local folders OR stop messing about! Thats AN answer but maybe
you can block another Admin? problem is, he could block you the
same way if he found out how so its really very silly! Hence 500 points.
