Hello. I currently belong to a network at work...however, I need to restrict SOME staff members from accessing my computer via the network...yet other staffers need access to my files. How can I set different permissions for different workstations on my network? Unfortunately, we are all running different OS's...I'm running XP Home, some are running 2000 Professional, and one is running Win98. Basically we have a router in the back which we are all connected to and which is connected to a DSL modem. My problem now is that when I try to go to the sharing properties of any given folder, I don't get all the options that the tutorial shows. I just get asked whether I want to share the file on the network and what I want to call it. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong! I tried to add some new "consoles" but it didn't change anything that I know of. I still don't have all of the folder options that the tutorial does for "sharing and security." I am able to share my files on my network...the problem is that I want to block some users...and I can't display the right folder properties to set these permissions.

use Sub-netting to split your LAN into two separate networks assigning the appropriate IP addresses to each PC allowing access to each sub-net as desired.
