Is it necessary to add users to enable password protected sharing in XP?
I'm trying to set up a basic file server at my work (a workgroup, not a domain), and am new to sharing beyond windows simple sharing. The "server" computer is running XP Pro, and all of the other computers are running XP Home. The catch is that I would like certain folders to only be accessible to certain computers and/or users. I've turned off simple file sharing already, and the basics of setting up permissions seems easy enough. The problem I'm having is that I'm only able to add users that are on the XP Pro machine. I can't add a location, which I think is what I need to do. Is that right? If I can't do it, should I just add a bunch of user accounts on the XP Pro machine and go from there?
