Allow a user to share files

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

We need some expert advice. Who knows of any way to allow a normal user to
share files without putting them in the "power users" or "administrators"
group. Group Policy? Registry hack? User rights?

Thanks

    If you setup a "shared" folder for them, then any "files" deposited in the
    "folder" will be shared.

    I have about 5 computers on a peer to peer network. Say they are called A,
    B, C , D , E - I want A & B to be able to share the resource but not C, D &
    E. The moment you share a resource it becomes available to everyone. This
    was very conviniently done under win 98 but in Win XP pro there is no way of
    assigning individual passwords to resources even with Simple File Sharing
    disabled.

    Since you mention disabling Simple File Sharing, I gather you have XP
    Pro. Create user groups with specific permissions to shares. Create the
    permissions using the Group Policy Editor. Assign the users you want to
    the new groups.
