First off I am on Windows XP Professional. I want to share a folder with another computer over the network, but I wish to password protect the folder. Neither of the computers are part of a domain.

Is there are simple way to do this? I looked it up on Google and all I saw was changing stuff under Permissions. That seemed to only work if you were part of a domain though.

Thanks in advance

from Windows Explorer (not IE), Tools -> Folder Options -> View -> Uncheck User Simple File Sharing.

sorry can't test this out for you, but that has worked for me in the past. both my work and home machines are in a domain.

Unchecking User Simple File Sharing did the trick. Thanks a lot for the help.
