I was looking to setup advanced file sharing, so i could restrict access to certain workgroup computers on my network - however everytime i go to do this, i need to select a "location" - which by default is set to the actual pc - when i attempt to click the locations button - to choose another computer (and so then i can pick a user on that computer), all i see is the first computer listed - i cant see the name of any other computers on the network.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Here is an excellent guide on how to do what you are doing. I know you'll prolly know most of it but perhaps it will have something you've missed.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif
