Simple Password Protect for XP share on Win2k Peer to peer Network

Hello,

I have a small (5 PC's) peer to peer network without centralized user authentication.  I want to share a folder from a Windows XP Pro machine so that it requires a password to login to it from any machine on the network, but I want to be sure that I don't need to change users to do it as 2 of the PC's are POS machines that need to be logged in as a certain user to work.

Greetings hydrazi,

All you need to do is to give each user his own User ID and Password, and then create a user name and password be used whenever they wanted to share Files/Folders
in each machine, this user name and password will be used only when they prompted to login to the other machines just for sharing.

Good Luck!

Hi hydrazi,

windows doesnt allow individual passwording of folder, its a fault that will hopefully one day be remedied.....

3rd party appz offer the best solution unless you want to just use workarounds like above
