How to Share and Set Permissions for Folders and Files Using Windows XP


This article describes how to share folders and files on a network using Windows XP.

File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
The File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component allows computers on a network to access resources on other computers using a Microsoft network. This component is installed and enabled by default. It is enabled per connection using TCP/IP and is necessary to share local folders.

The File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks component is the equivalent of the Server service in Windows NT 4.0.

To share folders with other users on your network

1.
Open My Documents in Windows Explorer. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.

2.
Click the folder you want to share.

3.
Click Share this folder in File and Folder Tasks.

4.
In the Properties dialog box select the radio button Share this folder to share the folder with other users on your network, as shown in Figure 1 below.

5.
To change the name of the folder on the network, type a new name for the folder in the Share name text box. This will not change the name of the folder on your computer.

Note The Sharing option is not available for the Documents and Settings, Program Files, and Windows system folders. In addition, you cannot share folders in other users? profiles.


To set, view, change, or remove file and folder permissions

1.
Open Windows Explorer, and then locate the file or folder for which you want to set permissions. To open Windows Explore click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Windows Explorer.

2.
Right-click the file or folder, click Properties, and then click the Security tab as shown in Figure 2 below.

dont know if i understand your question right but, if u want to access another computer, the first thing is to have computers that are networked and have similar network configurations. u can configure that using the My Network places icon. if its the whole drive u want to share, do so by right-clicking on the drive, select sharing and security page then share and set your permissions.
