Specs: Windows XP
I have a client have has 3 computers. One client is on there domain and the other two will not be on there domain. She needs to be able to have access to a shared folder on the network computer from the two non network. Is this possible? This might be more of a burden on my end. I'm thinking of just getting a switch and problem solved. also the 2 non network computers on have 1 NIC per.

What you guys think?

You only need one nic per computer

Networking starts at the physical level so if by non networked computers you mean they have no physical network connection then yes you need to do what ever you need to get physical connectivity.

Make more sense to have all computers connecting to the domain and have the file share on the server instead of the workstation.

all the computers have NIC. By non-networked comptuers I meant that they will not be on their domain. I totally agree with you. It would be alot easier if they were all on there domain, but my client wants it her way.

Lets say the domain name is

You want to put the two workstations, assuming they are physically connected to the network, in the mydomain workgroup.

Share the folder on the clients pc. Create accounts on her machine for the two pcs users with the same names/passwords they use to logon to their pcs.

To start have the share with full control for everyone.

The two pcs should be able to access the share by \\pcname\sharename
