    I am trying to share a folder over a home network. The problem is I can share it, but everyone on the network has access to it, which I dont want. So I attempted to set permissions for the users on the network that I want to have access to it, but XP cannot find the users, I can only find users on the local machine. All of the computers are on the same workgroup.

    How can I set up this share so only certain users are able to access it?

    Simple file sharing is already turned off. Setting the permissions is where I am stuck. I have admin rights on all the computers on the network. I can set permissions for users on the same computer as the folder I am trying to share and that works fine. But I cannot set permissions for users on other computers in the same network.

    There has to be something else that I am overlooking.
