Help with file sharing permissions
Posted on 2006-07-11
I need to set various permissions on a home network.
All computers are XP pro SP2
There are 4 workstations (peer to peer)
There is one workgroup = CULVERWELL
The 4 computers = DELL1, DELL2, KIDS1 and KIDS2
Basically DELL1 needs to access all 4
DELL2 need to share withDELL1
KIDS1 and KIDS2 must not see DELL1 or DELL2
we have simple file share enabled as it stands (i know we need to disable this to set the permissions)
But when i do this and try to set the permissions i cant add the computer or set it up.
I am also slightly confused when it comes to the definitions of user,group,computer name and which one i need to apply to set up the permissions.
