Windows file sharing is an all or nothing sort of proposition. Either everyone can see all shared folders, or you don't share any folders.
You can restrict access to certain folders but getting that to work with Windows file sharing can be problematic at best. I'd suggest something a bit more practical, like using FTP. Workstations 3-6 can have one login, and workstations 1 & 2 can have another login with a few additional folder options.
Best of all, if for some reason the people who use workstations 1 & 2 ever need to use 3-6, they can use the same login. And since FTP is a very old, very stable and very well understood protocol, getting help will be very easy, should you need it.
We're running WinXPsp2 on all workstations. How do I share folders only with certain workstations. Do I need software or is it already there in XP. For example I wish to share folder A with workstations 1 - 6 on the network but folder B with only workstations 1 and 2.
I've searched the net for the answer without any success. Please can anyone help. Thx
