Hi:

I am setting up a VPN (Virtual Private Network) between some XP and W2000 systems, and
want to arrange it so some users can access some folders, and not others.

The following is an example:

User Folder 1 Folder 2 Folder 3

Able Yes No No
Baker Yes Yes No
Charley No Yes Yes
Dog Yes No Yes


My problem is that I know there is a "shared" area, where everyone can access the folders,
and there are private areas where only the creator can access the folders, but I am not
certain how to set up an arrangement such as the one shown above, where the sign on will
be the criteria that will allow, or not allow, access to the folder.

First, is this possible?

Second how would one do it?

Thanks in advance

Best
