This is my first topic in this section, and I'm also new here on the forums, so nice to meet you!
Here is the thing I'm struggling with.
I have this small LAN, with a bunch of Windows 7 Pro computers (11 PCs), each of wich, has a single user account (admin rights) with no password, user is called user1. Each pc has a shared folder with documents, something like this
PC1 is called PC01 has a shared folder FOLDER and it has a user called user1
PC2 is called PC02 has a shared folder FOLDER and it has a user called user1
PC3 is called DVRPC has a shared folder FOLDER and it has a user called user1
PC3 is called PC03 has a shared folder FOLDER and it has a user called user1
Each PC has as as I said, a single user account with admin rights and no password (I know, I know, bad) + shared folders in the workgroup called WORK.
Now, what my client wants, is that via his laptop wich also runs Windows 7 (let's call it Supervisor) with a single user with no password and a MacPro Yosemite (call it MacSupervisor).
He wants to be able to access all the shares on these workgrouped computers from his Windows laptop and from his MacPro, but only him, the other users should not be able to browse and access the files in the shared folders! How do I do this using Windows 7 workgrouped computers, with no servers and AD and such. Can I use the Network and Sharing settings? Maybe set "Use password protected sharing ON" and specify on each computer, on the shared folder's options in the Users tab my client's username on his MacPro and Windows laptop? Will this work?
