Restrict windows fileshare by IP or hostname
Posted on 2013-01-10
We have a Windows 2008 file server that has some shares on it and access to these shares is controlled by NTFS permissions. However there is one share that has a special requirement that it should not be accessible remotely . We have used 2008 GPO preferences to map the drive based on source IP's and groups so when users who have access to this share connect remotely via Citrix they do not get this share mapped but they are still able to click on a link or UNC into the share. Is there any way to restrict this share itself to internal IP or hostname of their computer only?
Dir: c:\shared_folder shared as Share1
allowed hosts: IP address, IP range or Computer name &
allowed users: DOMAIN\SecurityGroup
Access should be allowed if both conditions are met. I am not sure if this is possible. Thanks for your help
