How do i set up a password protected network drive
Posted on 2009-07-02
I need to make a network driver secured with a password.
The network looks like this:
One computer running windows XP has a payroll database which is shared with 3 other workstations also on XP through a switch. These computers are apart of a larger network and i dont want any other users to be able to access the network drive.
How do i set a password for the network drive? I also need the computer with the database to be able to have full access to the other three but i dont want them to have access to more then a few files on the one sharing the database. In other words, the "host" needs full access to the clients files but the clients only needs to have access to one or maybe two files on the host. If this is not clear enough please let me know and ill try to explain in more detail.
