Note that I consider myself fairly decent on many computer-related topics, but with networking I'm totally lost. I don't care about how the computer gets online, just what happens while it's online!
There are 3 PCs in the house, all connect to the same network (local and internet), all 3 use Windows XP (I think the PC I'm having the trouble with is on the Home edition, the others are using Pro). Our connection is DSL connected to a wireless router. One of the PCs uses a wireless receiver, the other I just setup with a wireless USB device. We also have network share folders setup to transfer files from one PC to another wirelessly... that's where I'm having the issue.
I've got everything good on the PC that I just setup (online and connects to the network, and is able to share with the network). There's just one thing I can't figure out... I want ONLY this PC to be able to access a specific folder that I'm sharing, but not the other PC. Is that possible, and if so, how can I do this?
I've searched all over Google to figure out how to do this, I'm definiately no networking expert, I can't find anything. The closest I came was go to Folder Options > View > and unchecked Use Simple File Sharing. This gave me more options but I can't figure out what to do with them, I messed around and found where I can add a user but when I clicked the "Location" button, it only lists my PC as a location to add to be able to access the folder (and like I said, there's 2 other PCs and I only want one of them to access it but it doesn't list either one of them where I was looking). I don't know if that's a problem on my end or if I'm missing something, but I'm starting to get kind of frustrated trying to figure out what to do.
