I'm not sure anyone knows what you are talking about, but I will try to help.

If you have 2 PCs on the same network (inside your house, for instance), and you want PC A to access a folder on PC B called "Shared Folder", you would first create a user account on PC B called FriendsName, assign that user read/write or just read permissions on Shared Folder, then share Shared Folder, give it shared permissions of Everyone Full Control. When your friend tries to access Shared Folder by typing in \\\\PC B\\Shared Folder at the run prompt, it should prompt him for user credentials, in which he would type PC B\\FriendsName and then the password you assigned to it.

Clear as mud?

Let me try to explain.

I have several computers and a server on my network.

The server houses 6 1TB hdds. I am running Server 2008 r2 with a RAID setup on the OS. In this OS i have several folders.

Folder list:
Clients, Tutorials, Templates, Videos, Pictures, Orders.


Within this network i have several personal laptops, and computers. Several of the computers are located in my basement for myself and for buddies that said they will come on board to help me with my work. Now these four computers are on a Netgear Switch. These four computers i have named as workstations 1, 2, 3, 4. In each computer is a 500gb hdd. Now i would like for them to network back to the server and only see what i want each user to see that i may have setup on EACH workstation. The reason and logic for this is if my wife wants to login in for any reason while she is hanging out in the studio and just wants to browse the net there really isnt any reason for her to have access or SEE the clients folder. Same applies for my buddies, they dont need to see or access my Pictures or family videos folder.

This is what im trying to setup. I have researched in numerous directions and at one time started to get very lost. Then everyone just suggested a workgroup. Well I can setup a workgroup but i dont want to allow full public view for my files. I dont want everyone to see what is going on that i dont want them too.

I think i solved it and did it

For anyone that might want to know. I setup a workgroup with a unique name. What i did was on my FTP server i added users (not as admins) and went to each folder and said it gets "X" privileges. Then on certain workstations for certain buddies i created a user with the same credientials as i did on the FTP. I went to network and found the server, double clicked and it asked me for my user name and password (once for the ftp and once for the computer i was on). I saved the login event. I then opened up my computer and went to Map drive. Selected the drive and features then right clicked on the drive and pasted it on my desktop. All privileges and permissions work. Only took me two weeks to learn something new, lol.
