Specs: Windows XP,
We have set up 1 computer (from now Computer A) running on windows xp as a "server" with other computers in a MSHOME group (from now Computers B -D). File permissions and sharing was set up to allow all remote users (Computers B-D) read and write access. This is however not always appropriate. Is there a way in which we can share a specific file or folder with Computer C (read and write) but not with Computer B and D?

Permissions are based on users & groups, not on machines. If it's XP Professional, you can create groups & add users.

Thanks Guapo. Please excuse my explanation above, I'm quite a novice at this. I have already tried to create a new group. My problem is that when I attempt to add remote users (from Computer B - D above), I can not find them. If I type in the computer name or the IP Address Computer A says that it was not found. I would therefore like to add a remote user to a group. Currently all remote users are part of the MSHome group. In the end, I want to create different security levels for different remote users.

You could take a look on this share file with user/group permission in XP article, probably this is what you are looking for.

Hope this helps.

The remote users has to be added as a local user as well.
