    Thank you for looking.

    I have two Windows XP Pro computers. On Computer1 there is one user called Test. On computer2 there are five users including Test. When the user Test is on the second computer I want him only to have access to all the files on Computer1. I do not want to the other users on Computer2 to have access to anything on Computer1 other than then the shared folder. How can I do this?

    I know how to give share folders globally.

    Thank you.

    Use Advanced File Sharing (i.e., turn off Simple File Sharing) and give permission only to Test.
