  • Restrict Access to FileServer or Shares

    I am trying to find a simple/easy solution to restrict access to our Shares to only computers that are members of the domain. I know of 2 solutions but the first although easy for me to implement and administer would not be for others in my Dept. The second just seems like an administrative nightmare/overhead. We are using Windows 2008R2 DC's and FileServer.

    Solution 1: Setting up IPSec Domain Isolation to the FileServer
    Solution2: Restricting Users Log On To.... Computers List

    Any other or newer solutions to this problem? Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    shares are based onuser privs.

    make sure you dont use "everybody" but instead use aithenticated users.

    you could also look at network level authentication - requiring comouters to havecertificstes before they can access thenetwork at any level.

      I think what tehcamel is getting at is that you can use NTFS (and Share) permissions to control access.

      If the files are located on a drive formatted using NTFS then I recommend setting the Share permissions to Everyone -> Full Control and locking down access using the NTFS permissions.
