Hi Experts,

I have a client  moving into a new office. They will be sub-letting part of their office to another company. Both companies already have servers. Both companies must share a data line and a printer, but must otherwise be kept completely separate, so that neither’s data is accessible from the other.

Please advise the best solution.

If their ISP provide more than one IP, you can totally separate the network by setting up a router to each company.

If their ISP only give them one IP, you don't have much choice.  I believe the most secure way is to set up a Active Directory for each company and make sure nothing is share by "Everyone"... the lowest share level you want to give out is "domain users"

forgot to say the printer can then be added to the Domain controller to share to all users... (assuming it's a network printer)
