from what I remember, when you share a folder, it is all or nothing. once you share it everybody in the Workgroup can access it.

even on a Domain the access rights are based on user accounts not PC names

maybe look into a NAS were you can assign access rights based on user accounts

You can not restrict access based on computer name, only on accounts or user groups.
