I have successfully implemented the following on my LAN and would
like input and criticism as the effectiveness of said items and where
I should have done more or different.
1. I implemented the Classic Share via disabling Simple File Sharing
on WinXP pro on all nodes.
2. I created a user accts for each user on every node in Lan (with their
pswds) and gave each user a shared folder on each node with pertinent
share permissions and NTFS group access.
3. I created another user limited acct named BrowseWeb and did not
give it a pswd nor did I create any new folders with access permissions
nor any NTFS access rights for said user acct.
However I surmise the acct's Documents and Settings folders created by
the system for the BrowseWeb acct would be lan accessible except I did
not give this user acct a pswd and I disabled the guest acct on all nodes. So
while using this acct to browse the internet, it is not possible to access
This all seems to work well, and I surmise I am somewhat more secure than I
was with no passwords. And now I can designate which folders I want shared
by which users as opposed to all users seeing any shared folders outside of
their Documents and Settings folders. Of course I have a NAT router and
use AES encryption with a very long key on the wireless port.
