Go into Folder Options and uncheck "Use Simple File Sharing". Create accounts for remote users on the local computer and set permissions based on the user. Enter the username from the XP box into the USername and password box of Win98's Network logon screen. Then that user can access the remote share and others can't.

Yes, both machines have to be logged in using the same account (Name & Pass), and the same account must be programmed into both machines.

How do i create a remote user?

my scenario is this: Computer A and B.

i've a folder named mp3 on Computer A. However i only want one defined user to access the folder mp3 on computer A from computer B.

What should i do so that the defined user can access to the mp3 folder from computer B?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
