Network Share Permissions (Command)

Hi Everybody,

I want to make a batch file that shares and give some permissions to a folder. Right now I have:

net share C$ /delete
net share shared=C:\stuff_to_share /users:2

This effectively shares the folder c:\stuff_to_share, but it gives permissions to everybody (read only, since I'm in XP SP2), but I want to remove the Everybody permission and give specific access to some people.

Of course, it most be a command, not through the Windows GUI.

I looked the CACLS command, but it seems to affect only the local Access List, not the Shared ones.

Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.

Share permissions are a bit on the pointless side.  I ALMOST never set them - use NTFS (CACLS) that applies all the time.

I already review the CACLS (as noted above), but it seams to apply only the Local Access Control Lists. How do you use it to give Network Permissions?

As I said, Share permissions are a bit on the pointless side.  Use NTFS permissions.

Share permissions ONLY apply to a top level folder and then ONLY when accessed via the Network - NTFS permissions can be customized PER file/folder AND They DO apply even when logged on locally - share permissions do not.

There are some links here for setting share permissions - but I can't say it enough - most admins DO NOT MODIFY the share permissions because they are pointless.

"net share C$ /delete"
BTW that will ony delete the C$ share untill the computer is restarted. Windows automatically recreates it.

If for whatever reason you do want to remove the C$ share permanently, you need to also edit the registry.

> net share C$ /delete
Somehow I missed that

> Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.
DO NOT stop sharing the C$ share - this is an administrative that can be an invaluable resource in systems management.  Only admins can access it so your users don't have rights to it.

You CAN follow the link Kenneniah provided, but my advice is NOT TO DO THIS.

Maybe you have your reasons - but without knowing them, this is the BEST advice I can provide.

I agree that removing the C$ share is pointless. It's easy for any admistrator to get around anyway, as they can always use computer management among many other tools to connect and create a share anyway.
