sharing printer/folders with passwords in xp

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.


I am interested in the same thing, I have been trying to do that also. Someone please help!


That pic is not coming out, it is all black on the top, what is it supposed to be? What are you trying to show?

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

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
