How to limit access

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
On windows 7 64 bit i was wanting to create a user/access login. I am wanting to be able to limit access to certain hard drives on the server. Ive not done this before so useful links are great. My overall objective is to allow friends that are coming over to work in my basement access to certain files on my server. I will have a dropped line for them to hook up on or can work on an extra computer. Ideas are great.

You have to be more specific. Are you talking an actual server like windows server, linux server, or novell with a domain? Or do you mean just a PC that is used as a file share? Are you using windows home premium or professional/ultimate?

This would all be a lot easier if you could create your own domain on windows server 08. But if you dont feel comfortable going that route you can delegate rights to a folder by changing the sharing permissions on that folder to specific users in a workgroup. You will have to have your friends join your workgroup and you need to set sharing permissions to everyone or specific people so that they can all access the files. You are probably better off just setting it to everyone and then messing with it later to save you the headache of troubleshooting it.

Before you do any of that you need to go into Network and Sharing Center\\Advanced sharing settings and enable network discovery and public folder sharing. Anyone else that has windows 7 or vista will have to do this as well.

then remove the permissions to edit it. You can set the gpo. You set the group policy objects to control the computers or computer in the network. The settings will include which items are displayed to the user which changes is allowed to make and other settings. So if you enable gpo it will get the policies from the domain and not local group. Then you can set the anonymous user restrictions. Where you can set default settings, to sam listings or explicit permissions needed.
But you can control everything with gpo

Here's a look into what it is

Remember to put a password on your windows admin account and don't use a easy one. Only use the admin account when you need to.

Look at this as well

What server are you setting up? Ftp?
