    I have been trying to figure out how to share a printer with a password, or specify which users can use it on the network, and I am having no luck. I'm on a school network using windows xp, so there are many people, so I don't want to just share the printer. This also applies to folders, can you put a password on them? I have tried disabling simple file sharing, but that did not help. Any suggestions would be appriciated.

    sorry...I entered preview, and the board took it anyway...I was testing, on no particular thread, so dissregard that gif

    as far as your question, I believe you can do what you need through gpedit, but I don't have pro installed yet, so someone with pro should be able to help you.

    sorry bout those other posts
