    Question Home Network Security Question

    I have 4 computers on my home network. I have 1 computer that I dont want to allow access to a particular directory on my network drive. All the computers are running Windows XP Professional. What is the best way to achieve this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Require a password to access the folder in question and make it private.

    The local sharing and security feature is grayed out when I go to properties for this specific directory. Not sure how I can ungray it if you know what I mean.

    Never mind I know what I did wrong. I had simple file sharing enabled.

    Thanks for the help mnosteele.
