Granting rights from Local user to a different server for security reasons
Posted on 2014-01-30
Having a brain cramp and need help.
I cannot remember how I accomplished this in the past.
Granting outside user (GGuser) access to specific files in 2 directories (folderapp and folderdata on one server Serverlarge in the domain nwtraders.local. Access is through RDP server RemoteToMe
RDP is the preferred method for accessing the network here in the office.
Created user GGuser on the rdp machine (RemoteToMe) as a local user so they have no rights to ANY other server in the domain.
I wanted to grant the local user RemoteToMe/GGuser the rights to the directories on the server Serverlarge. \\Serverlarge\data\FolderApp and \\Serverlarge\data\FolderData
Probably by mapping drive M to \\Serverlarge\data
I can't seem to do it.
Question is, can it be done?
Or do I need to create a local user on Serverlarge and map the drive that way?
Or is their a better way?
