    Hi ,
    We have NT 4 server w/ Win98 desktops.
    I am attempting to go paperless.
    I would like to create a shared folder that will allow my
    students to drop their assignemnts into it , but not allow
    them to open the folder or see/open the other files, thus allowing them to acces the
    other student's files.
    I have tried (on the NT server)giving the students:
    1. Add: write & execute (WX)
    2. Add & Read: read, write & execute (RWX)

    I have also tried sharing from a Win98 desktop.

    Sometime I can access the folder on the desktop but not via an app (i.e.Word)
    What I end up with is either a folder they can't access
    or a folder that they can get to everything.

    I rememebr setting up a "Drop box" many years ago with
    Apple share.
    How do I do this with NT 4 or Win 98?
    Thanks.
    Bob

    You can't let everyone in and restrict access.

    HI Styxx,
    Thanks for taking the time to reply.
    I understand what you are saying.
    It apps will not ever allow the user to open the folder
    I have been working with different setups & now have a folder that will allow the students to copy to the folder yet not open it.
