Hello guys I have question concerning file sharing security I am a novice user but this is my question I share an internet connection with my neighbor they have the modem and phone line I have an ethernet switcher and wireless router it was all configured by the way when I moved in. I use two desktop computers at home one in my living room and one in the bedroom both have the ethernet cord running to them from the router or switcher not sure router I believe but I watch tv online in my bedroom but I download all my shows out in the living room comp and have been copying them to a usb and then go watch them in my room isnt there a way I can watch what I downloaded to livroom comp in my bedroom I have researched the file share in xp I named my comp in livroom pc1 and bedroom pc2 both named workgroup so when I click my networkplaces I see those sorry so long but here is my question and I did read alot on this and am just more confused maybe someone has a real simple solution for me in the sharing security tab I put everyone in the groups catogory in the comp managment can my neighbors click on there mynetworkplaces and see my pc1 pc2 folders there and can they just open them and have complete access to them? I cant seem to use a password with this fileshare thing what is the easiest way for me to secure my files so just I see them or have access to them I am admin on both comp and I want to be able to delete or do whatever to them from either comp what i read seemed so hard to understand setting permission s read,write,only etc full access modify I tried to monkey around with that without the simple file share on and then I couldnt access any of them so I went back to simple file share permission everyone any ideas how to make this simple yet secure I just want to watch tv and have acces to either comp without no worries that the whole neighborhood is in my computer thanks sorry the explanation was so long but want to get the right help and give you all the details thanks oops I think I posted this in the wrong spot sorry I will let moderater move dont know how
