  • password protect folder on a network

    My question is this. is it possible to password protect the sharedfolder on the fileserver? what i really want is once everyone logging to their computer that's attached on the network, they start trying to gain access to the folder on the fileserver. But before they gain access, they have to supply a password. Now, i'm talking about across the network, not on the local computer. I mean i found password protected folders that actually works on the local machine only.

    OS's would be nice!!
    Is this on a domain?

    If your talking windows 2000 / 2003 within a domain environment then why not use a combination of share and NTFS permissions.

    If you supply more info about your requirements then we may be able to help you out more.

    Thanks

      You could password folders in Windows 95 I think...?

      Nowadays we use "Security" - it's safer.

          I've never known any version of Windows to have the capability to protect files in that way.

          In reality you will need to buy a third party tool to do this effectively.
