I dont know if this is the correct forum to post, maybe it should be in networking. anyway.
Is it posible to set file permissions on a workgroup network and restrict everyone except for one workgroup user from accessing the folder. The thing is that workgroup user is using a differne PC in the network.
When I attempt to add the user in the permissions section, I cannot find any users on other workgroup computers, only the local comuter users are shown. in other words there are no other locations available to find users in, typing the name of the computers does not help.
I can create a local user with the same user name and password as the remote user and set premission that way, however this is messy, what happens if the user decied to change his password for example.
I this just the way it is in windows workgroups?
Any help would be great. Thanks.
