Require password to access shared folder on other computer
Vista SP2

I have a small home network, with shared document folders on each computer.
How do I configure the share to require someone from computer A to enter a
password when accessing the shared folder on computer B?

Thanks!

Re: Require password to access shared folder on other computer
Hi
Make sure that the Software Firewall on each computer allows free local
traffic. If you use 3rd party Firewall On, Vista/XP Native Firewall should
be Off, and the active Firewall has to adjusted to your Network IP numbers
on what is some time called the Trusted Zone (consult your 3rd Party
Firewall instructions.
