File Sharing question.

Hi experts,
Now I have a group of users who are in a workgroup (not in my domain) wish to use my file server share folder.
My server is a Windows 2003 clustered server.
Assuming I have six folders in this file share, how can I configured it such that folder A,B,C is read/write to users in my domain and the users in the workgroup and folder D,E,F is read only to user in the workgroup?
Thanks.

under the NTFS permissions TAB, give authenticated users (for domain users) whatever permissions, and then the everyone group (for non domain) approp permissions

make sure you put your share permissions to everyone full control and then nail down with NTFS

Hi, Jay_Jay70
I have created same account (user id and password for each user in the workgroup) in my domain.
I suspect when they have mapped into my shared folder, they are authenticated user as well?
Because these workgroup users have read/write access to all six folders when
they are supposed to have only read access to folder D,E,F.

Some questions:
1) If I removed the account from the domain, how should the workgroup user mapped
into my shared folder?
2) How can I check the effective permission of the user that has mapped into my shared
folder to verify if my setting is correct?

Your help is appreciated.
Thanks.

having those accounts makes no difference at all, they have different SID's thus they are entirely unique....you have effectivle created accounts that do nothing :)

anonymous access usually falls into the everyone group - check the advanced security settings and look at "effective permissions" for the everyone group

Hi, Jay_Jay70
So how should the workgroup user mapped into my shared folder in this case to gain
access as anonymous?
Thanks.

thats what the everyone group allows...the everyone group contains the "guest" group which allows the anonymous access
