SHARED FOLDERS

By Tigger37 ·
I'm sharing a folder with many sub folders. Users have access to only certain sub folders. Can I limit the list to only those they have access to? Also can I have a user see only the shared folders that they have access to instead of every shared folder?

You can make use of the hidden share (Thats what I did for the home directory for my customer). Example, make a share with a share name homedir$ Do remember to assign the permission.

Cheers!

If I understand this correctly - group folder that everyone has access to with subfolders in it. Security is set such that they can only get into certain folders from there and you would like to limit their view to the folders they have access to. Unfortunately, working off a common share, that cannot be done - at least in all my experience. You can create the hidden shares as mentioned, but that will not eliminate the folders being seen from the common share.

You have the largest problem that NT-Win2k has. Under Novell and *NIX environments, you only see what you have rights to access. Sadly NT-Win2k simply cannot allow you to do what you want to do. Using NTFS security you can lock down individual subfolders under the share, but you can't hide folders users don't have access to. Its the most disappointing shortcoming on NT in my estimation.

Good luck...
