Win Server 2003 data sharing to only a specific subnet/ip (possible?)

Posted on 2006-05-15
Last Modified: 2013-12-04
I am successfully sharing with Windows Server 2003 RC2 to share data to Unix (via NFS) and other Windows machines.  My problem is I would like to regulate this so I will only share certain folders to both a specific subnet, and to a specific ip address.  Is this possible?  I'm assuming it would be under the Sharing & Security right-click option of a folder and under the security tab.  When I go to add a user or group name, I can not add a specific subnet or ip, only larger scale items such as Network (All).  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You can't control access to folders by IP. In such situation you can use specific users to control access to folders and built-in firewall to control access to whole server.

    you can use ipfiltering but this will limit asscess on a whole, not folder level.

    1. Create new user.
    2. Give him permissions to open specific shared folder
    3. Use this user when you need access to specific shared folder
    4. Enjoy :)
